Retweet Velocity

How fast can someone retweet or favorite a tweet you before you suspect it is a bot?  Or some other automated response that I don’t know about?  My tendency towards positive self-delusion usually leads me towards the most favorable interpretation.  But one second ?!?  I know a tweet is only a few characters and so shouldn’t take more than a second to read, but I just can’t help being suspicious.
