As Twitter opens a pop-up visitor centre in Edinburgh

comedyA panel of comedians has named what they think is  Scotland’s funniest tweet.

Marc Simpson from Lhanbryde in Moray took the title for his 2017 post:  ‘Wis walkin home n someone threw a block of cheese oot their windee n it hit me on the head, i turned n shouted that wisna very mature wis it.’

Judge Fern Brady said: ‘The social commentary that came through with some of the tweets had us in stitches but @marcsimps0n’s witty retort and excellent pun was the obvious winner.  It was like the Twitter equivalent of being heckled.  Brilliant!’

She and the rest of the panel – Fern Brady, Mark Nelson, Janey Godley and Ray Bradshaw – which picked the winner to coincide with the pop-up Scottish Twitter Visitor Centre which opens at 21 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh, from tomorrow until August 25.

The display will feature a stained glass window adorned by national treasure Lewis Capaldi, evocative Tweets reimagined as oil paintings and cross stitch, and a timeline celebrating the greatest #ScottishTwitter moments such as ‘Hurricane Bawbag’.
