The window depicts the singer-songwriter wearing sunglasses and a towel around his head in reference to a picture he posted on the social media site.

It is part of the #ScottishTwitter visitor centre, which opens on Wednesday and includes tweets reimagined as oil paintings and cross-stitch.

There is also a translation feature for tweets and a timeline celebrating #ScottishTwitter moments including Hurricane Bawbag when an extratropical cyclone hit the country in December 2011.

Dara Nasr, managing director at Twitter UK, said: "There were genuine LOLs in the office as we delved into the #ScottishTwitter conversations.

"We're so proud to open the visitor centre as a celebration of the insightful, frank and even philosophical humour of #ScottishTwitter."

A judging panel of comedians appearing at this year's Fringe also picked a tweet from @marcsimps0n as Scotland's funniest tweet which will receive its own wall of honour in the centre.

It reads: "wis walkin home n someone threw a block of cheese oot their windee n it hit me on the head, i turned n shouted that wisna very mature wis it."

"It was like the Twitter equivalent of being heckled. Brilliant."

The centre can be found at 21 Blackfriars Street, and is open from 10am to 8pm until Sunday.
