In partnership with the Vancouver Sun, BTA’s 5rd annual online trick-or treat count is on again tonight. Tell us the nearest intersection to where you live, how many trick-or-treaters you received and what type of candy you gave out.
This year, we are teaming up with the Vancouver Sun and its fledgling data journalist, Tara Carman (@) to present #TreatCount2015 and submit your counts through three ways:
2) Email: Counters can email us at Email to Treatcount with their closest street intersection, number of trick or treaters, and candy type. For example, if you live near the corner of Main and 37th Ave with 40 Trick or Treaters and handing out lollipops, you can email the message: “Main and 37th Ave, 40, lollipops”
3) Tweet Us: Counters can tweet us with the hashtag #treatcount2015. With the above example, a Twitter submission would be: “Main and 37th Ave, 40, lollipops, #treatcount2015″
For those interested in observing the social media role out of #treatcount2015, you can either follow the hashtag or access the Project’s Storify page.
The BTAworks data gremlins will process emails and tweets during first week of November and publish their results on this blog and a story in the Vancouver Sun. We’ll be collecting entries up until 4pm on November 2nd. Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
