Round two of the playoffs is on the way and once again the Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks are going to do battle to see who will advance to the conference finals in the west.
Blogger Trevor Presiloski of the Internet Trashcan came up with the idea to hold a contest on Twitter to come up with the best #hashtag for the series.
Hashtags by definition are used to create real time track records of creating groups on Twitter. Placing the # sign in front of keywords or targeted groups, makes it easier to track all conversations in the twitter timeline via search.
The Canucks have jumped on board and will provide a team signed stick for whatever hashtag is voted the best one via a poll on Canucks.com. The winning hashtag will become the official Canucks/Blackhawks hashtag for the series.
Last year the hashtag #blackhawkdown was used frequently. Add your hashtag on twitter and address it to @VanCanucks. The top five will be chosen and added to a poll, where the winning tag will be picked and that person will win the signed stick!
Good luck everyone! Share this post on Twitter and Facebook and let’s see what you can come up with!
