50,000 Twitter followers
Let's say you are following 50,000 people and have 50,000 followers and have written, say, 50,000 Tweets, many of them quotes and generic status updates. Perhaps you also Tweet news articles where all you've done is read the headline.

Let's just say that.

How old are you?

Do people really still play the numbers game? I thought that went out with pink shirts!

One thing that human beings (domesticated chimps) seem to be acutely aware of is their social status, relative to others in their circles.

This incessant tweeting and striving for more followers, from a biologists perspective, is probably akin to the territorial defecations of a baboon or the chest thumping of a Silverback.

Sorry but sports cars, if you like them, are just great fun. It's a different thing.

I completely agree with the rest of your assessment though and have often thought that tattoos are essentially the manifestation of the pink and blue bottoms that are favoured by some species of primate.
