On 18 February 2021, the Celts Walking On page was launched on Twitter. The idea of Matt McGlone and three friends, the group is designed to promote personal fitness, inspire wellbeing and positivity among Celtic fans. People are encouraged to share their walking videos, chat and encourage others on the platform, in a bid to overcome the physical and mental difficulties of the lockdown. In just under two weeks, the page has grown to have 987 followers and has posted no less than 596 tweets.
