During the NHL season the term “Canucks” usually becomes one of the top ten trending topics on Twitter while other teams across the league have yet to achieve this social media popularity.
To show their appreciation and to further engage fans, the Vancouver Canucks will be hosting a series of Tweetups throughout the 2009-2010 season. The first of which will take place this Thursday, September 17th at the Hurricane Grill in Yaletown.
The event has been added to the Vancouver Tweetup website if you would like to RSVP. The team will offer up some fabulous prizes ranging from signed merchandise to pre-season game tickets, and gift certificates for the Tweetup host venues.
Last year as a member of the Canucks Fan Zone I participated in liveblogs and promotion of the team’s social media initiatives. This year the Fan Zone group is back and we’ll be helping the franchise coordinate events like these as well as create online content and other fun campaigns.
Fan Zone members include Richard Loat (@Mozy19), JJ Guerrero (@canuckshockey), Brian Wawryshyn (@canuckscorner), Alex (@hgiraffe), John Bollwitt (@JohnBollwitt), Mike (@nucksmisconduct), Dave (@Uncleweed), and yours truly. You can follow any Fan Zone member, or @VanCanucks (the official account of the Canucks) on Twitter for news, game information, and updates throughout the season.
