Okay, Pittsburgh fans – we need to Pittsburgh on the Shorty Awards map. The Shorty Awards are like the oscars of Twitter. Each year they come up with a bunch of categories – and the winners are chosen by who gets the most votes.
This year I think we should create a Pgh category on the Shorty awards.
To nominate or vote for some one just post a tweet with the following info:
I nominate @TwitterUser for a Shorty Award in #PGH because [add reason here]
You can also send shorter votes like this: #shortyawards @username #PGH [add reason here].
You can always vote from ShortyAwards.com too. Some things to keep in mind…
- you must include a reason for your vote
- you can only vote for one person/twitter user in a category – yes that means you will have to choose between Sally Wiggin Hair @sallywigginhair and Fake Julie Bologna @fakejulie and any of the other awesome Pittsburgh twitter users.
If we get enough votes on the Shorty Awards for category PGH – it could become an official category – if not maybe we can just plan our own PGHShortyAwards ceremony right here in Pittsburgh.
Also – while you are voting – we think you should cast a few votes for these Pittsburgh twitter users in the official categories
- The Mattress Factory for Cultural Institution [I nominate @MattressFactory for a Shorty Award in #culturalinstitution because…]
- Should I Drink That for Food [I nominate @SIDT for a Shorty Award in #food because…]
- Pittsburgh Transit on Twitter [I nominate @pghtransit for a Shorty Award in #customerservice because…]
