The Canadian combo's Twitter feed is largely dedicated to two things: posting concert photos and sending personalized messages to their fans. These range from simple thank-yous to genuinely touching messages.
In one recent exchange, a fan wrote than Nickelback had been a source of comfort during her difficult high school years, and the band responded like this:
Kristian: if our music played even the tiniest part in bringing you any light in otherwise dark times, then that makes us the luckiest 4 guys ever. That said, I see a strong, resilient woman that had the courage to never give up or in. We should be thanking you. So, thank you. https://t.co/WU3v6RpeNL— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 14, 2018
Occasionally, the group — or whoever on their team handles the social media accounts — make light-hearted jokes about the band members themselves.
StephK - I'm not saying that Ryan sleeps with it like it was a woobie. I'm also not saying he doesn't sleep with it like it was a woobie. Soooooo....... https://t.co/TS5R3XSuGJ— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 14, 2018
Q: How many denim shirts does Ryan own? A: All of them, Julia. All of them. https://t.co/GND1ywJHlt— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 4, 2018
Adam - fun fact, just one pair. They are surgically attached. https://t.co/ayUoxcMuTz— Nickelback (@Nickelback) August 5, 2017
They have also weighed in on some matters of public interest, such as posting tributes to late celebs or sharing an inspirational message on International Women's Day.
Sad to hear of Stephen Hawking's passing but extremely grateful for his contributions. He was a first-rate example of what a curious mind can achieve and how it can also inspire. Equally important as his theories. Thank you for everything... -RP pic.twitter.com/vTsEiZLdwb— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 14, 2018
Beautiful tribute to @gorddownie last night on the Juno's by Dallas Green @cityandcolour & @sarah_harmer. His brothers did him justice. We think of Gord, his family and bandmates often. In Gord's generous words, "We're all richer for having seen them" -RP pic.twitter.com/3JuTyuMVGa— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 26, 2018

Every now and then, they also have some good-natured interaction with fellow musicians like Monster Truck, ROAM or rapper Wiz Khalifa.
Thank you to the incredible @Monster_Truck_ for continuing to raise the bar and for being one of the toughest acts to follow on a nightly basis. It took everything we had to keep up with you! Continued success and Godspeed gents. #NBVegas #MonsterTruck— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 4, 2018

The whole thing is quite sweet. And if we're being totally honest, we hope they see this article and tweet something nice to us.
Tiffani was stoked that we liked her original tweet and now she almost cried and she's making us misty and well, who's being dramatic now?!? You win Tiffani, you win. https://t.co/LJzHsCaWMm— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 14, 2018

Jhessy - that positively and utterly so kind of you to say. Sometimes we feel like we don't properly convey how much some of the wonderful things you all say to us means. This is one of those times. Thank you. #Grateful https://t.co/f5DjTWXwR5— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 14, 2018
Mikayla - Sorry your day was cruddy. Tomorrow's like a brand new playground that you're going to go kick some arse at and the recess bell is about to ring. Chin up kiddo, you got this! https://t.co/8wYCrohpty— Nickelback (@Nickelback) March 13, 2018
