SATISFACTION

As an older person having limited skill with social media, I wonder what causes so many people to use brief, transient messaging so heavily. They must be getting something out of it or they would not do it. Nothing changes because you or I tweet so there is no question of achievement motivation. Is it a desire to be a part of something? Does saying something electronically give one a feeling of identity? Is it a defence against the knowledge that 99.9% of us are utterly insignificant?
