“Hollywood has the Oscars. Broadway has the Tonys. Now Twitter has the…Shorty Awards” – The New York Times
The Shorty Awards celebrate the best people and organizations on Twitter. They are supported and judged by the Twitter community who picks the nominees and votes on them. Winners in 27 categories will be announced in New York in March.
We are proud to announce that our own Steve Spangler has been nominated in the #science category for a Shorty Award.
If you’d like to vote for Steve, go to the Shorty Awards website and send the tweet out for @stevespangler. Or you can send a tweet straight thru your Twitter account. The tweet must say:
“I nominate @SteveSpangler for a Shorty Award in #science because…”
The “because” part is the most important piece. You must add a why Steve is deserving of this award or the vote will not count.
The awards are given based on each content creator’s whole Twitter oeuvre, not just a single tweet. Any Twitter user with a valid, active account can nominate and vote; votes are sent out as tweets from that user’s account. Next month, the nominees will be narrowed to five per category and referred to the hilariously named Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences for final judging.
