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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Just a friendly reminder of the very recent horrors committed by our neighbours across the Irish Sea - as if you needed one.

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.

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...
