You probably noticed, a little show about sex and young people and Brooklyn had its season premiere last weekend, to much fanfare, and much aggressive social media commentary. With all those studies coming out about Twitter being an increasingly big part of the TV-watching experience, you want to be included in the fray, don't you? Don't you?!
Good. Lucky for you, pretty much every tweet there is about the show can be easily categorized by genre, so the learning curve is pretty fast. Hence, this super-handy guide to navigating — nay, dominating! — the world of Girls live-tweeting for its second episode this weekend (an issue of life and death importance, no question). Here are all your available options.

This is what I'll be doing, before I watch a bootlegged stream at my desk on Monday.
ok wtf is girls on HBO about just getting nude, or is it another sex in the city

Not sure why I keep watching #Girls and why Lena Dunham always has the need to be naked! This show is so weird and existential @hbo
— Rhonda Benitez (@Mrs_Lady_B) January 14, 2013
It's like, people are naked on this HBO show all the time, and nobody's talking about it! What's going on?
Indulged in free HBO weekend. Saw GIRLS. What would my mother have thought? Scary to think what has become of this generation.

I really hope my daughter doesn't grow up to be anything like those HBO "girls" . Vomit Hollywood

Because Millenials are certainly the first, and maybe only, generation of people who have been confused and a little dumb in their youth. And "Sassy Single Moms" on the internet need company, I'm guessing.
Also I would like to say that I think #GIRLS is the best show on television right now and @lenadunham is flawless. I couldn't love her more.

Girls on HBO is a highly recommended show

On the brightside, Girls is an awesome show made even greater with some brews and some bros and some pizza. HBO, you've done it again
— Dakota West Foss (@Cody_Calamity) January 18, 2013
Many, many extra points if it turns out Girls is your idea of a perfect night in with the bros.
Its a good thing Lena D from hbo #Girls is talented cause she is fugly @shannonafa

I mean, you'll probably have company if you do this, but your company will be tasteless jerks. Do not actually do this.
Take it back: Girls party playing Solange "Losing You" which is pitch-perfect for young yuppie BK apt party

So I decided to check out the show 'Girls' on HBO because of Carly's song being on there and well, it revolves mostly around sex. OH CARLY.

This can be done with varying degrees of accuracy (and relevance).
Let the bitches turn hipster , urban outfitters stock is going up , thank you hbo and girls

If not you, then who?
I will never watch HBO's "Girls" because I know that's one of the main reasons How To Make It In America isn't around anymore. :/
— Zachary Gonzalez (@ZachryyGonzalez) January 14, 2013
Is it wrong I'm still pissed "How To Make It In America" was cancelled?Wrong move #HBO. And the Girls premiere was less interesting, too!

Uh, sure! Whatever makes the most sense for you, I guess. Just follow your heart, and be safe out there!
