Edinburgh Fringe display celebrates best of Scottish Twitter
The social media company will also be announcing Scotland’s funniest tweet.
Twitter is set to celebrate the success of #ScottishTwitter with an “immersive visitor centre” during the Edinburgh Fringe.
The unique brand of social media posts will have its moment in the sun when Visit Scottish Twitter opens in Edinburgh on August 21, showcasing some of the best tweets of the genre.
Posts will be displayed in the form of oil paintings and cross stitch, while commemorative gifts will be available from a shop.
The term Scottish Twitter has become shorthand for any funny post written with a Scottish accent in mind, and has amassed a following on Twitter as well as Reddit.
Some of the most retweeted posts include “Canny believe how expensive being alive is” and “A twirls just a flake wae a jacket oan” among others.
