'Mad Men' is Back, and Twitter and I Can't Wait to Spoil It

Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo (Zou Bisou Bisou, I know.) Did you have fun at Don's 40th Birthday Bash? I sure did. What better way to bring us back to everything we love about Mad Men than with a swanky cocktail party starring a sultry French Canadian?
Season Five returned like candy for my '60s-loving eyes, and while sure, nothing majorly new or shocking happened during the premiere we waited 17 months for, lots of seeds were planted (the youth! the racial unrest! the onward! the upward! the antiquated ideals!) and I for one am pretty amped to see where the SCDP crew takes us.
But beyond Roger smoking cigarettes around newborns and Don actually marrying Megan -- there are two versions of this drama running in tandem, and I can't get over the live performances that play out on Twitter as the show airs.
Twitter has made me aware of infinite Drapers. Is the plural "Don Drapers" or "Dons Draper"? Dammit Siri, what DO you know?— Senile Don Draper (@SenileDonDraper) March 26, 2012

I have tickets to the bean ballet and the curtain's going to go up #madmen— Stan Rizzo (@StanRizzo_SCDP) March 26, 2012
Don't worry about the beans presentation @PeggyOlson. They're a magical fruit. I'm sure you'll come up with something.— _DonDraper (@_DonDraper) March 26, 2012
(For the record, I would never picket for beans) #madmen— Stan Rizzo (@StanRizzo_SCDP) March 26, 2012

Remember, @PeteCampbell_NY, when you assume, it makes an ass out of you. Not me. I outsource that.— Senile Don Draper (@SenileDonDraper) March 26, 2012
I'm feeling very lost. Almost forgotten, cast off, never heard from.— Elizabeth D. Francis (@OldBettyDraper) March 26, 2012

I have no eye for the creative, but I quite enjoyed @peggyolson's "bean ballet."— Lane Pryce (@lanepryce) March 26, 2012
