21 Reasons Why Riot Fest's Twitter Feed Is Winning The Internet


On Friday, Riot Fest is set to take over Chicago's Humboldt Park before traveling to Denver a week later and we here at HuffPost couldn't be more excited.

Adding to the anticipation for the fest in the months that have passed since the fest's lineup -- including headliners Fall Out Boy, a reunited Replacements, Blink-182, Blondie, Public Enemy, Gwar and more -- was released has been the festival/carnival's always-entertaining Twitter feed, which usually teeters between sassy rebuffs of critics and apparently whiskey-fueled, curt responses to "let me Google that for you"-type questions.

The feed even caught the eye of John Stamos, who is being saluted with his own butter carving at the Chicago event. (Why? Why not?)

Basically, this guy is living every frustrated social media manager's dream.

Below are 21 reasons why we think @RiotFest is doing it right.

They're resourceful.

They make it personal.

They keep it real.

They exude confidence.

They're perceptive.

They care about America's future.

No, really, they'll help you keep your priorities in check.

They're not above a poop joke.

They like to party.

They care about personal hygiene.

They are definitely up with the latest foodie trends.

They have an excellent grasp of what social media is and isn't.

They don't shy away from possible controversy. Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

They take pride in their hometown/neighborhood.

They're feminists (we're guessing).

They'll be drinking none of your Haterade. No way, no how.

They believe in YOLO.

They still love you.

They just want you to be happy. No more tears.

Did we mention the butter John Stamos carving? Oh, sorry.
