Twitter takes a revealing peek at our well-behaved city with #HowSeattleRiots

SEATTLE -- In the moments after Seahawks fans around Seattle began celebrating the big Super Bowl win, it became quickly apparent this was not going to be your normal celebration. It was jubilation, Seattle style.

The #HowSeattleRiots hilarious hashtag run on Twitter may not have started with this video, but the video of Ballard "rioters" waiting for the crosswalk signal certainly captures the spirit of that long list of quips about Seattle's character.

( oh, and to the detractors: Yes, WTO was an exceptional riot but that was, like, last century!)

Not sure if this is the first one, but it was 20 hours ago and was as far back as my Twitter app would scroll.
