To the uninitiated, Twitter can be a bit of a mine field. It's where memes and news stories are often born and, in many ways, it's a language in and of itself. And then, of course, you've got the specific subculture that is Irish Twitter which is a whole other ball game.
We here at LADBible understand that it can be overwhelming trying to stay on top of a platform that feels like if you blink, you'll miss something crucial. That's why we've put together this nifty guide to the best of what's occurred on Irish Twitter this week - the funniest memes, the hottest takes and the moments that just made us say WT actual F.
So grab a cuppa, sit back and catch up on all the best tweets you might have missed this week, safe in the knowledge you can regurgitate them all to your friends as though they're your original thoughts in the coming week.
LOL - This week's funniest tweets
Ciara McShane illustrates the point that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing, including Twitter speak.
Millennial Twitter is so funny to me. Someone gets married, biggest day of their life, and posted on Twitter as "I did a thing"- Ciara McShane (@Ciara87C) October 1, 2021
The secret life of a National Library of Ireland librarian sounds blissfully simplistic.
Hello from the National Library of Ireland, where no one is doing any work and no fewer than 5 members of staff are attempting to escort a bird from the reading room.- Caitlyn Brinkman-Schwartz (@CaitlynBBS) September 23, 2021
Sounds like the sort of chemist frequented by Tony Cantwell's Ploon character.

All in favour of sending a Britney-shaped float down the Liffey on November 12th raise your hand?
Britney will officially be a free woman on November 12th and this should be the date for the new bank holiday in Ireland, in this essay I will... pic.twitter.com/gJsivUa4Ks- Kevin Twomey (@Kevin2mey) September 30, 2021
A big 'ba-dum-tss' to you for this one Maurice Walsh.
Asked for a roll in Centra but I got a pi instead.- Maurice Walsh has risen from the grave. (@mauricewalsh1) September 26, 2021

This guy is lucky he came out of this cooking experience with both eyes intact by the looks of things.

Today we're going to learn how to sear a beef
Step 1. Put the beef in a glass oven tray which it should absolutely not go in.
Step 2. Clean up the shattered glass in your kitchen and go to Tesco and get a new beef pic.twitter.com/eTlOBBYpLQ
TBH - The tweets that made us go 'Hmm...'
Oh dear. We are sure Fine Gael TD Josepha Madigan had the best of intentions here but as you can see from the reaction from many Twitter users with genuine mobility issues, her efforts left a lot to be desired it would seem.
This is NOT IT. Can please please stop trying on mobility devices to "learn from the experiences", and actually listen to wheelchair users and those who depend on other mobility aids???? https://t.co/qJDu4yVHwD- Púca (@shar_nolan) September 30, 2021
It was the LinkedIn post heard around the country this week after a Lettings Manager at leading estates agent Sherry Fitzgerald took to the social media platform to boast about the agency's ability to 'achieve record breaking rents and source the highest quality tenants'. The levels of a tone deaf are off the Richter scale here.

Before you read the tweet below, prepare for your heart to be broken. The Savoy has since responded explaining that its no cash policy is a response to the need to reduce interactions between employees and customers in light of COVID but it does make you wonder what are the other casualties to such a rule?
You'll be delighted to know that Cineworld has since invited this man in to see No Time To Die and gave him the star treatment.
Me little heart me 82 year old granda went into the savoy to go the pictures & watch a film and the @SavoyDublin wouldn't take cash off him the poor old man doesn't even own cards the neck of them disgraceful like turned him away :cry:- Karla :dizzy: (@karlafitz2) October 1, 2021
WTF - An ode to the tweet we just didn't see coming
Thanks for that mental image Bressie. Lovely.
So, went to doctor in Spain to get my ears drained. What came out of them is pretty grim. In better news, the medical system here is a joy- Niall Breslin (@nbrez) October 2, 2021
