Example Of The Power Of Social Media: Single Tweet Can Cause A Riot

I don't know who DJ Kaskade is or if the person is he or she until I read this Los Angeles Times post where he tweeted "Today(at)6pm in Hollywood (at)Mann's Chinese Theatre. ME+BIG SPEAKERS+MUSIC(equals)BLOCK PARTY!!! RT!" and caused a riot as a result.
