In the last five years, I've met and made acquaintance with such a large group of strangers via the ability to take away the distance between us on the tubes of the internet: Twitter. 

Twitter can also a mouthpiece for jerks to have a direct line to someone they’re yelling at without having to consider the usual bounds of personal interaction. It’s been a crazy evolution of our culture and communication and it means I’ve met a ton of Sounders FC fans.

All you have to do is look for people tweeting their fingers off during a Sounders FC match (or event you’re into) and engage them. Over time, I’ve learned about the little nuances that make all these different fans unique - there’s a greater Sounders FC umbrella over a vast array of any number of fun hobbies and ideologies.

This is exactly how things went between RC (@rcmakris) and I. Had we not gone back-and-forth on Twitter about various nonsense, I would never become aware of an awesome music festival he’s putting on in Seattle: Seattle Ska Fest!
