In case you missed it, Lance Armstrong finally admitted he was doping during his storied cycling career. But, you live in the modern age of tweet or it didn’t happen and, since the story practically broke the internet, we know you know.

And you weren’t the only ones tweeting about it. Since Armstrong was such a huge star with so many celebrity fans and friends, the Twitterverse was exploding during his big interview with Oprah Winfrey on Thursday night.

We thought we’d save you the grunt work and share some of the (mostly hilarious) highlights. Be sure to let us know your favorite in the comments.

Steve Martin: Bad day: Spent it on a 787 Dreamliner with Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o’s ex girlfriend.

Lena Dunham: Despite the latest news my father will not stop using Lance Armstrong as an adjective for strength and determination.

Seth Meyers: Say what you will, he’s still the Lance Armstrong of d*ckheads.

Josh Groban: I'm just bummed I wasn't asked to sing on this episode. #Oprah

Rashida Jones: Great day for liars! They are dominating the news today. #CongratsUSA

Matthew Perry: I always want to make sure Oprah is on MY side.

Serena Williams: Wow. Watching @Oprah interview. Just WOW.

Jack Osbourne: Honestly I don't care that Lance doped. He gave people hope and that's more important then anything. So what if he lied. #livestrong

Rita Wilson: CHEAT ( noun) A person who behaves dishonestly in order to gain an advantage. Lance left out the "behaves dishonestly" part, right?

Albert Brooks: Would love to see Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds do The Odd Couple on Broadway.

Andy Roddick: Wow….. Oprah comes out very strong!

Anderson Cooper: "It didn't feel wrong" He didn't feel bad. He didn't feel he was cheating.

Piers Morgan: The fact @lancearmstrong admits he had to look up what the word 'cheat' means, says all you need to know about the man. #LiveWrong

Tom Arnold: A lot of sports journalists were questioning if Oprah had what it takes to thoroughly interview Lance Armstrong. The woman is shredding him.
