This Month’s Top Tweets (According To The “Friend”)

top tweets

Every so often, we like to bring you some of the top tweets we uncover over on our Twitter feed.

These aren’t necessarily ours, or even from our followers — just some gems that have caught our attention or made us laugh recently.

Take a look at our picks below. 

Here to hear

This one, about a little girl’s reaction when her hearing aids are turned on in the morning, caught the eye (or ear?) of Features Ed Alex.

Those are some contented noises!

A little history

This one is from friend of the “Friend” Charlotte Lauder, who has guested with Angela on the radio and spoken at some of our 150th anniversary events this year.

Charlotte’s PhD research into Scottish magazines means she always has an interesting historical titbit to share.

Here, she makes a connection between a Perth-based cleaners and some early contributors to our magazine.

And a lovely(?) drink

Just what on earth is “Dr Tibbles’ Vi-Cocoa”? 

This vintage “Friend” front page from 1907 doesn’t really say . . . and despite the fabulous illustration, there’s not many of us in the office would take a chance drinking it!

This image was shared by Falkirk Archives.

A democratic right to exercise

Literally the best thing to come out of this latest UK general election.

Take a look at #dogsatpollingstations. We guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!

Finally . . . okay, so this one’s cheating

We like to think this is how Editor Angela and Fiction Ed Shirley made their entrance to the PPA Scotland Awards!

That’s it from us! We’ll bring you more top tweets next month!
