Is Twitter so easy that even a Caveman could use it?

Twitter is addictive - and everyone is getting into the TwitterZone. Everyone is catching on to this addiction - presidents, news anchors, celebrities, businesses, politicians, comedians, entrepreneurs, churches, schools, grandmothers, grandfathers, dads, moms, students, kids, and even some animals has their own tweets - you name it and they are on Twitter.

Why this fascination for Twitter?

We need to think like a Caveman to find some of the answer to this question.

Here are some basic Caveman needs;

1. Biological and Physiological needs - air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep, etc

2. Safety needs - protection from elements, security, order, law, limits, stability, etc

3. Belongingness and Love needs - work group, family, affection, relationships, etc

4. Esteem needs - self-esteem, achievement, mastery, independence, status, dominance, prestige, managerial responsibility, etc

5. Self-Actualization needs - realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences

When you follow someone on Twitter, your most quality followers are those that help you fulfill all your basic needs. And if they help you achieve something you never thought you would be able to, then you have set the terms for long term friendship that both of you will benefit from. Follow someone is not a number game, it is all about psychology. And then it's about how far are you willing to go to give out your share of information to others so they can fulfill their needs. Twitter is all about give with open hands - and then you will receive in abundance back.
