Glasgow City Council launches surprise social media drink-along

Glasgow City Council took to Periscope last night to debut its drink-along livestream ‘Wine cuz bored’

IN A BOLD MOVE early yesterday evening Glasgow City Council launched its controversial drink-along livestream, ‘Wine cuz bored’, via Periscope.

In one of the funnier examples of someone not realising they’re broadcasting their desire for wine on an official work account, the stream quickly went dark. However, the people of Twitter were already completely behind the idea, and more than ready to put the ‘social’ into both social media and social drinking.

CommonSpace was unable to verify claims that this would become a weekly feature accompanied by a YouTube series hosted by Frank McAveety. We can but hope.
