Twitter gets a lot of credit for bringing people together into groups and quickly harnessing the power of many behind a common cause. Today, we saw Twitter in action. Sometimes, Twitter can be a force for good, and can inspire profound change in the world. Not in this case. Today, Twitter quickly brought together a group of people behind a common cause that I can not support: the use of sour cream on burritos.
If you’ve seen my Twitter bio, you know my feelings on this subject:

The next step is the formal organization of the group:
They create a common rally flag:
That’s how a revolution begins, with some people with a common idea and a common goal, even if it is, like in this case, misguided.
To those, who support this cause I support you and stand with you to say “Viva La Crema!” Even if it’ll never be on my burrito.
