In the UK, bus driver's nickname for concessionary (bus) pass holders. Mainly, but not exclusively, old people.

The majority of concessionary passes are only valid after 9:30am weekdays. However, most old folk seem to think its ok to try anyway and attempt to board before they are entitled to.

Not only does this inconvenience regular, fare-paying passengers who already have to deal with overcrowding in the morning rush-hour, but it is also extremely frustrating for the bus driver, who keeps having to stop and tell them that yes, they are too early.

constantly repeated, the words "too" and "early" merge to become "twirly"
"the usual bloody twirly's were out again this morning"
"what, and you made them wait, for the sake of a couple of minutes?"
"dead right, balls to 'em, they're old, how important can it be that they absolutely must get to where they're going as early as they think they can get away with?"

*pissing with rain, freezing cold winter morning, 9:28am*
"you're twirly, you will have to pay at this time"
"oh, never mind then, i'd rather wait half an hour for the next bus and save myself 80p"
*gets back off bus into freezing cold piss rain"

"no, love. you're too early"
*drives to next stop*
"sorry, you're too early"
*drives to next stop*
"too early, im afraid"
*getting pissed off, drives to next stop*
*drives to next stop*

Excited not only sexually, but also emotionally. The feeling of being horny and giddy at the same time.
Guy 1- "When you go out you don't take home the first girl you talk to just because she makes you all horny."
Guy 2- "It's not just that she's hot, she gives me the feels. Most girls don't make me feel anything. That girl makes me twirly."

An old person, usually a pensioner, who tries to use their free travel pass before the morning commuter rush is over. Contracted from "too early".
Look at that twirly at the front of the queue over there!

A scouse (Liverpudlian) expression for pensioner or old person. Free Bus passes for the elderly prohibit travel before certain times to make more space during rush hours. The phrase came about because bus conductors (now drivers) would say "you're too early" to the wrinklies pushing aggressively onto the bus
"Hold on, you're twirly - get the next one.. it's about 2 hours behind us"

"Got stuck in the queue behind a bunch of twirlies cashing in their piggy banks"
