What are the Shorties?
According to the New York Times, Hollywood has the Oscars. Broadway has the Tony’s. Now Twitter has the… Shorty Awards 

The Shorty Awards honor the best people and organizations producing short-form, real-time social media content. Nominations may be made through Twitter. The program recognizes winners in dozens of featured categories, as well as thousands of crowd-sourced categories.

When is it all over?
Nominations will be tweeted throughout January. Then beginning in February, the nominees will be narrowed down to six finalists in each category. Winners will be determined by a combination of popular vote and by the members of the Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences.
