For all the celebrity cameos (Lenny Kravitz! Matthew McConaughey! Alex Moffat of “Saturday Night Live”) and hopeful downtown San Francisco restaurateurs and hotel operators, Dreamforce, the titanic conference put on by corporate tech giant Salesforce, is a pain in the ass for just about everyone else in San Francisco! Francisco, tourists and residents alike.

Beyond the clogged streets and sidewalks of downtown San Francisco, Dreamforce makes explicit Salesforce’s pervasive presence in the city. It not only occupies a massive physical space; for a few days a year, it turns out to be a huge imposition on everyone else who lives, works and visits downtown San Francisco.

And while a plurality of people on Twitter who post about Salesforce seem excited to attend (and there are many, many people recirculating photos of Co-CEO Marc Benioff on Ariana Grande style bunny ears)there are plenty of others who are less than enamored with the whole thing.

Here are the best tweets teasing Dreamforce 2022 so far, from SantaCon comparisons to Lenny Kravitz.

Dreamforce performs Tuesday through Thursday at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco. And if you don’t want to brave the crowds, it also streams online through Salesforce Plus.
