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.

It is truly astonishing what people will buy if you smack a Balenciaga logo on it.

Halloween is a time for reflecting and resurrecting the greatest moments in Irish Twitter history. A highlight this year has to be these ladies paying homage to this iconic photocall to announce the law against ticket touting.
They even got the tick of approval from the former TD Noel Rock himself! Hats off to you, girls.

Romeo and Juliet have nothing on this pair of lovebirds. Is it just us or does she look a little stiff?
It's kind of hard to believe we're already almost three weeks into our so-called 'freedom'. Naturally enough, people had different ideas for how they wished to celebrate the grand reopening of the nightlight industry - some of us woke up that day and chose chaos by opting to join a 2+ hour long queue to get into Coppers.
Hats off like. Imagine enduring lockdown for almost two years and your first instinct is to queue for Coppers for your nightclub experience. It's like having access to to an en suite but insisting on shitting in your hands.

Sadly, not every Dublin nightlife institution was lucky enough to survive lockdown after lockdown. Rest In Peace to the after-hours wine Indian - we hardly knew ye.
The Indian that does afters wine is gone. Dublin officially done. RIP.

We could all do with this girl's grandfather's voice in our head reminding us to not over exert ourselves in the name of employment.
Every time I go to visit my grandad he tells me that I work too hard, I literally did a 5 hour shift today and he's saying it's disgraceful and I deserve a rest. He's dead right

TBH - The tweets that made us go 'Hmm...'
There has been much excitement surrounding the murmurings of a new bank holiday next year to commemorate the supreme efforts made by frontline workers since the start of the pandemic.
Of course, Ireland being Ireland, not everyone is pleased at the thought of people having an additional one day off work a year. The disgruntled party? Employer groups, obviously.
"We can't give a bank holiday to honour essential workers because employers objected" is a pretty good memorial for the pandemic actually pic.twitter.com/Jy8ueiSWc1

Just a friendly reminder of the very recent horrors committed by our neighbours across the Irish Sea - as if you needed one.
In early 60s, the British troops castrated & burnt Kenyans alive in concentration camps. Today, 10,000 British soldiers train there annually. They covered up the 2012 killing of Agnes Wajiru in Nanyuki and this year opened a new £70 mill barracks in the same area.

Note to the HSE - before imploring the nation to not go into work, consider whether that would be a legitimate option, financially speaking, for most people.
Currently Irish workers have no legal right to paid sick leave. https://t.co/tyfgJh2fgX

WTF - An ode to the tweet we just didn't see coming
And the award for Worst Advice To Give A Woman Immediately After Giving Birth goes to...
Sometimes I think of the midwife who came into my room just after I'd given birth to my 3rd child and said it's nice to have 3,because even if one dies you'll still have 2 left. it made no sense to me at the time,and it still doesn't 10 years later...
