DJ Plays with the Power of Social Media and Starts Riot

The tweets you see above are from DJ Kaskade, who was set to play a private after-party for the premiere of a film about the Electric Daisy Carnival yesterday in Hollywood. Lesson o’ the day: be careful what you wish for. Because shortly after these tweets, a small riot broke out in Hollywood, led by disappointed fans who thought they were getting a free street concert. They were not.

Kaskade’s tweets over the next few hours are an amazing real time exercise in “THIS IS THE COOLEST IDEA EVER, I’M AWESOME…FUCK! PEOPLE ARE THROWING BOTTLES AT POLICE! I AM GOING TO GET REAMED FOR THIS!”

The WHAT THE FUCK HAVE I DONE! tweets start appearing as soon as Kaskade actually witnesses what’s happening.
