The ‘Covideo party’ is taking off.

Hundreds of Irish people have been watching the same film at the same time in their own home and tweeting about it, to help combat the boredom of isolation.

The hashtag ‘Covideo party’ was created by Irish Comedian Alison Spittle and has been trending on Twitter since it began last Friday.

Using the hashtag, people vote on a film and watch it on Netflix at 9 o’clock every night.

The movement allows people the opportunity to connect and communicate without leaving their homes and risking their health or the health of others.

A brilliant way to still be social, and keep practicing social distancing.
