31 ways Irish Twitter is the true window to the country's soul

Best place on the internet.

IRISH TWITTER IS a strange, wonderful and comfortingly familiar place…

1. It lets us know we’re not alone. We are ALL Sally

2. And we are ALL Sarah

3. It has a rich and deep affinity with youth culture

4. It never lets a good “any yokes” reference pass

5. Ever

6. It’s nostalgic and emotional

7. And to be honest, Leanne, who WOULDN’T be snappin?

8. Irish Twitter is in every parish

9. It’s promoting skills

10. It’s railing against any trio of bicycled Fintans

fintans @infinityonhi @infinityonhi

11. And keeping the Coppers tradition alive

12. You don’t know suffering until you’ve felt the clash of the ash

13. Or the clash of the ‘Macs

14. Mass naggins. A rite of passage

15. You can take the girl out of Ireland…

16. Or Waterford…

17. Spicebags reign supreme

18. Except when they rip the hoop off you

19. Irish Twitter would never let a jumbo meet such an horrific end

20. Dodging a gob lob is a particular Irish skill

21. As is getting the ride

22. And veg soup at the debs

23. You just can’t beat the soup at the debs

24. Or a post-debs roll

25. Twitter shows us that Irish mams are pure chancers

26. Who take no guff

27. And always remember: The Match waits for no man

28. And Mattress Mick is your friend

29. Irish Twitter has its finger on the pulse of politics

30. And Irish culture

31. And is single handedly shutting the #cleaneats lie down

32. And telling the world about amn’t

Long live battered sausages. Long live amn’t. Long live Irish Twitter.
