In an age where to tweet is human and to trend divine, having a significant social media following is generally considered to be a good thing. Now, in advance of Book Week Scotland, the Scottish Book Trust has published a list of Scotland's 50 most influential novelists on Twitter, so now we all know who can hashtag like a champion.
Topping the poll is JK Rowling, which comes as no surprise: Harry Potter's enormous popularity aside, her profile is full of some absolute gems, including this time she had a spiffy back and forth with Robert Galbraith (aka, herself).

A packed programme of star-studded author events, kids' activities and the distribution of free books all combine to form a week-long national celebration of reading.
