National Lampoon’s first Twitter Awards: Who won?

Who decides who’s the best at using Twitter? Exactly.

Nobody knows. Which means everybody can throw their proverbial hats into the three-ring social media circus and make their own proclamations. Which is what the latest edition of kids over at the National Lampoon chose to do with their first-ever Twitter Awards. As they explained, “Since there are awards for everything else in this God-Forsaken world, we’ve decided there should be awards for Twitter also, and we’ve decided we should be the ones to dole them out because… well, just BECAUSE.”

They drew up the categories and nominees, and then over the past month, asked the public to vote for their favorites — which, this being Twitter, would benefit the nominees who plugged the Awards and the Lampoon the most, and had the most loyal Twitter followings.

On Thursday night, they announced the winners, not on Twitter, but on UStream. If you missed it, then just read this list. How do you think they did? What would you do differently if you were handing out Twitter awards?
