Twitter round-up: The best of the brilliant #GrowingUpScottish

Twitter harked back to the golden years of #GrowingUpScottish over the weekend

SCOTLAND took to twitter to relive the halcyon days of staying out until the streetlights came on (and not a minute later!) and collecting ginger bottles to exchange for sweeties when #GrowingUpScottish began trending over the weekend.

Of course, there were some collectively denounced downsides: social dancing classes at school, and being ‘kept in’ (aka. grounded).

We’ve rounded up some of the most popular tweets, and a couple of stoaters you might have missed.

Some big names weighed in pretty early on with a couple of truths about telly that were spot on.

Of course, it wasn’t long before it got quite political.

Tolstoy said “All happy families are alike,” and so are all Scottish families judging by these tweets.

Sometimes, a picture was worth almost 140 characters in itself.

And no one can forget it being like a wild night in The Garage when this banger got dropped at a school singing assembly.

There were some pretty universal statements that had everyone nodding in agreement.

Finally, we can probably all admit to having been sent for one of these at some point.
