Going into it’s second year, the Shorty Awards have returned! What are the Shorty Awards? Well for those who weren’t around or didn’t see it last year:

The Shorty Awards honor the best people and organizations on Twitter. These unique awards are for the Twitter community, by the Twitter community. Online voting is public and democratic, culminating in an awards ceremony that recognizes the winners in 27 official categories as well as those in brand new crowd-sourced ones.

Yes it is THE premiere award ceremony for the major voices on Twitter. Bringing forth the greatest in preset categories as the new option this year of allowing the Twitter community to add their own! That’s right there are no individual judges to impress or buy off. This is an award ceremony that is awarded by the ENTIRE Twitter community. Well, those who choose to participate that is.

    How do they pick who gets nominated is it from highest follower count or the organizations that basically are huge outside of twitter as well.

  • Purely based off of the number of votes each nominee gets, each of which need a Twitter account.
