For all of the trolls and other obnoxious, terrible people on it, Twitter still has some wonderful, mostly undiscovered corners tucked away that when occasionally stumbled up make the social media service seem like it might be half-way decent after all. One of those nooks is an area known as Sottish Twitter because, well, it consists of tweets written by people from Scotland.
