Often, Twitter is bad and a godforsaken hellsite that finds new ways to spread misery. Sometimes, though, Twitter is Actually Good. Like when Iowa beats Iowa State for the fifth straight year WOOOOOOOOOOOOO. So let's go to some of the best tweets reacting to the win.
Of all of the Kirk Ferentz games that was one of the most Ferentzy.— Irrational Hawkeye (@IrrationalHawk) September 15, 2019
It's true -- that game was pretty close to PEAK FERENTZ.
And this play... this play will live in Cy-Hawk infamy:
Did 18-17 seem like a weird final score to you? Well, it was!
There have been five 18-17 games in the last 20 seasons of CFB and Iowa has unsurprisingly been involved in two of them (and won both, also unsurprisingly).— Paul Myerberg (@PaulMyerberg) September 15, 2019
The other 18-17 game that Iowa played in? An 18-17 win over Northern Illinois in Soldier Field in 2012.
Who's the lamest Avenger now? NOT HAWKEYE, THAT'S WHO.
Pat Angerer speaks no lies:
We are the best team ever . Never had any doubt— (@PatAngererUSA) September 15, 2019
Some Iowa State ran around (like idiots) on the field during the second weather delay in the game, but hey -- maybe they just knew they weren't going to be able to do that after the game.
The official Hawkeye Football account (@HawkeyeFootball) was on fire after the game.
Swag levels off the charts:
The main Iowa account (@TheIowaHawkeyes) also had some good ones:
It's a Hawkeye State, dammit. Always and forever.
We got a little reaction from the Iowa players in the locker room after the win and they were, um, very very excited, shall we say (NSFW language):
I think the football players are, what the kids call, turnt. pic.twitter.com/pbh5guuxax— sam (@sammmidd) September 15, 2019
They were also excited on the sidelines:

Finally, Tyler Cook was at the game and had a jersey-related bet with current Denver Nugget teammate (and former Iowa State Cyclone guard) Monte Morris, which he was quick to remind Morris about after Iowa picked up yet another Cy-Hawk win:
GO IOWA AWESOME.
