Twitterati, start your feeds! Tonight is the biggest event in the world of SMS text messaging: The Shorty Awards.
Winners will receive their Shorties (heh) live at the ceremony in New York City.
Follow your favorites …
There’s no real red carpet. This isn’t the Oscars. But:
Timmy (thinkgeek‘s famous monkey), up for a Customer Service Shorty, is hitting the cream soda pretty hard.
Carel Pedre, in town from Haiti and nominated for an Innovation Shorty, is looking calm and ready.
betty_draper (also up for an Innovation Shorty), who never breaks character even on the big day, hasn’t even left her kitchen.
These are just a few of my favorites. I also like adbroad, and believe she will take the Advertising Shorty this year.
The fight of the night may be in Journalism: my favorite is Rachel Maddow. For me, the prize would be getting to talk to her.
Whom do you follow? How will they do? I am rooting for all of the above, especially Carel: the man with his country’s heart in his hands.
Je t’aime, Carel Pedre.
