The Queens­ferry Cross­ing trended heav­ily as the new bridge wel­comed its first mo­torists – or those who could han­dle the lengthy queues, at least. @Ot­tod27 said: “The queue for the Queens­ferry cross­ing is miles long. Build an­other bridge.” @Jor­dan­del­rey said: “The traf­fic is in­sane. Queues all the way from Queens­ferry Cross­ing to Hal­beath P&R” @Davekidd_58 said: “For cry­ing out loud ppl, the queues for @Frc_queens­ferry are un­be­liev­able. It’s a bridge, it will be there for a while” @lin­da_la­m­ond said: “Sit­ting in a huge queue wait­ing to cross the @FRC_ Queens­ferry, good way to spend your day off, lol”


Kezia Dug­dale’s shock res­ig­na­tion as leader of the Scot­tish Labour Party was de­scribed yes­ter­day as a ‘bolt from the blue’. Opin­ion was di­vided over her de­ci­sion to step down. @Jen­ny­gilruth said: “Dig­ni­fied, com­pas­sion­ate & prin­ci­pled. PS @kez­dug­dale, are you now free to wash the dishes?” @Ed_miliband said: “@kez­dug­dale: you gave your heart and soul to lead­ing Scot­tish Labour. Thank you. You de­serve to get your life back. En­joy.” But @Mr­top­ple said: “Feel­ing a bit queasy re out­pour­ing of af­fec­tion for Kezia Dug­dale. No one forced her into the job, nor made her tell peo­ple to vote Tory...” @Ab­sen­tee_tweep said: “Glad Kezia Dug­dale is fi­nally do­ing the de­cent thing. I just hope she hasn’t per­ma­nently ru­ined Labour in Scot­land.”


Josh Lit­tle­john, founder of char­i­ta­ble sand­wich bar enterprise So­cial Bite, an­nounced a new ini­tia­tive yes­ter­day. Named Sleep in the Park, it is hoped up to 9,000 peo­ple will take part in the Ed­in­burgh event this De­cem­ber. A host of stars, in­clud­ing Liam Gal­lagher and Bob Geldof, will sup­port the project. @Heather­pee­bles said: “HUGE news from the he­roes @So­cial­bite_. There’s no stop­ping them! Can’t wait for #Sleepinthep­ark” @Stephenbmci said: “Can’t wait for this, ku­dos to @So­cial­bite_” But @lynseym­ck­e­own said: “I ap­pre­ci­ate the good work but I just don’t agree with celebs pre­tend­ing to sleep rough when it’s noth­ing like re­ally sleep­ing rough!”
