The Best D.C. Rage Tweets
Social media operates how Rosetta Stone software should: even if you’re a casual user, you can become fluent in the language of sarcasm and screed.
If you haven’t opened Facebook or Twitter today, chances are a friend, a coworker or stranger is a) frustrated about something, and b) wants everyone to know it.
Tuesday on The Kojo Nnamdi Show, we’re exploring online rage and how it might differ from expressing our emotions in person. To kick the conversation off, here are the most amusing rage tweets from Washingtonians angry about everything from escalator lanes to selfie sticks (okay, mostly elevator lanes). Submit your favorites, and tune in to “Rage Tweeting, Trolling And Online Anger” at 12 p.m. EST on Tuesday, April 21, 2015.

As a DC resident I think selfie sticks should be decriminalized and taxed for revenue.

People who complain about how terrible DC tourists are obviously haven't met any DC residents
