There is a hilarious Twitter feud going on, and for once it has nothing to do with Kanye West.

The parties involved are actually two libraries from the rival Scottish islands of Shetland and Orkney.

It all kicked off when Orkney Library received the holy grail of Twitter use – the verified blue tick.

As reported by the i100, it was a pretty big deal for the account with 26,000 followers, considering the isles only have a population of around 20,000.

And what better way is there to celebrate than sticking two fingers up at your closest rival…

Not one to suffer in silence, the Shetland library account fired some shots straight back.


Then other social media users started calling out Orkney too, much to the delight of Shetland.

Recognising that social media is a fickle beast Orkney then backed off and appealed to Shetland’s ego…

But it turns out the two accounts have a history of one-upmanship, with Orkney bragging previously about their celebrity x-factor.

Someone needs to put a lid on this before it spirals out of control into a tribal war.
