The Shortyawards

You might remember a number of months ago the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds experimented with Twitter. At the time Twitter was in its infancy. Twitter is an online communication program which allows posted “updates” using up to 140 characters (yes, no more than 140 characters) These updates are called a tweets”. The technology has taken off and Twitter’s popularity is soaring. Now, an Internet company named Sawhorse has decided to “kick it up a notch” for Twitter. In January 2009 Sawhorse will be giving out Twitter awards to the best “tweets” of 2008. They called them “Shortyawards”. Shortyawards will be disturbed by category…humor, food, news, sports etc. According to Sawhorse’s CEO, Gregory Galant “there is a long history of one-line content dating back to the Ten Commandments…By forcing you to make it short, omit words, it makes us all into better writers and occasionally forces a more profound statement than one with no word limit”. I couldn’t agree more…and Tweeting is fun. It sounds like the Shortawards will be an annual event. For now, Sawhorse is still taking nominations which can be submitted online.
