Password guessing

Interesting ideas for password guessing software.

I wonder any text analytic techniques, specifically stylometry, would be useful for reducing the number of passwords that need to be guessed.  Like does the writer invariant apply to Tweets?

You could monitor someone’s Tweets, or blog posts for that matter, and get an idea of some of the author’s invariant text properties, like average word length.

Maybe their passwords would also have similar properties.
