Citiot means "idiot from the city." People who live in rural areas might use this portmanteau (of "city" and "idiot") to describe city-dwellers they find particularly stupid or offensive.
The term citiot is most often used to refer to snobbish and/or oblivious city dwellers, who neither know nor care to learn what living in non-urban areas is actually like. Citiot tourists may parade around a rural vacation destination acting like they own the place, causing problems for the people who actually live in that location.
However, some rural people use the term citiot as a blanket term to refer to all city-dwelling people, regardless of those city dwellers' attitudes, knowledge, and intentions. These rural citizens may be just as close-minded as the citiots they're referring to.
