A Collection Of Our Favourite “Friend” Tweets

Do you use social media?

Our Facebook and Twitter pages are great places to have conversations with our readers, contributors and fans.

But if it isn’t your thing (or if you just don’t follow us . . . but, of course, you should!), we’ve gathered a few of the best messages we’ve received over the last little while.

Just Twitter this time, but keep an eye out for Facebook coming soon!

A New One Just Out

A great little insight into the longevity of our magazine, and its place in popular consciousness even as far back as 1887.

We’ve all been this excited by the thought of a new issue!

I Spy . . .

Here’s someone’s sneak peek from our 150th birthday party in January. It doubles as a great long-lens shot of our Meadowside HQ in Dundee!

A Happy Birthday Poem

“Friend” contributor Yvonne took to Twitter to show off her rhyming skills — and to wish us a happy birthday!

Quite A Crowd

This fantastic message from contributor Glenda came while she was a guest at our 150th Birthday Bash at Alvaston Hall Hotel in Cheshire.

We think it demonstrates the importance of not judging a book (or a magazine!) by its cover.

Oh, Baby

Humour has always been an important part of the “Friend” and its appeal. This particular piece may have been played for laughs, but we’re sure the line on a baby’s lungs will sound familiar to all the new mothers out there, even now in the 21st century!

This tweet came from Charlotte Lauder, who delivered a talk on “‘The People’s Friend’ And Women” at our Mitchell Library and Scottish Storytelling Centre events earlier this year.

The Hand Of Friendship

This fantastic mural was created by those benefiting from the work of the Winnie Mabaso Foundation in South Africa. The Foundation was the focus of our 2017 Hand Of Friendship campaign, and our readers have really taken it to their heart.

To us, this is what social media is all about: sharing heartwarming, positive messages, and appreciation for one another.

Find the “Friend” on Facebook and Twitter and join in the conversation today. We’d love to hear from you!
