POV: You're in your early 30s and you hear you'll be able to register for the vaccine within the week. Do you a) start planning a visit to your grandparents b) re-download Tinder because you'll be allowed to get the shift again soon or c) spend three hours coming up with a tweet you hope will go viral?
If Irish Twitter is anything to go by, option c is highest on most of our priority lists. Here are some of the best we've seen so far:
me, before today: “I am not *nearly* 30! I am 28 and ten months! How very dare you?”

Extra points for linking it back to *that* Nadine Coyle moment.
Geriatric millennials, the indie disco is within our reach. Soon we shall dance to Blister In The Sun, Killing In The Name, Blue Monday, and Blister In The Sun a second time again https://t.co/74Xx3mcWox

If anyone other than the people administering the vaccine ask, we're 27 and three quarters thanks very much.

This one isn't about millennials per se but it just made us lol.
Needless to say there are also countless "hook it to my veins" tweets and of course plenty of Simpsons references. We millennials as a group like to stick to what we know. We're getting old, after all.
