Shorty Awards.

If you’re on Twitter at all (and if you’re reading this, chances you are) it would be hard to not know that the Shorty Awards are currently taking place.  These are awards for twitter users across pretty much any category possible.  There’s some good news and some bad news, though.

Currently in the #health category we have more quacks and snakeoil salespeople than anything else.  Fortunately we’ve managed to get @DrRachie in to first spot, but it’s a tight race between legitimate votes for her and bot votes for the second place quack @HealthRanger who runs the misinformation, antivax and anti-science-based-medicine site naturalnews.com.  So jump on over now and vote for @DrRachie asap to help keep her in the clear (and legitimate) lead!

Keep in mind that only one vote (the most recent) per category counts, and you must put a reason in for your vote to make it.

Secondly, I’m putting out a personal request for self pimpage. I am not ashamed. I am also not wearing pants. Vote for me in the #nopants category, now. Please!  At this point in time I only need 24 votes to get the number one spot.

  1. Just want to mention deadlines. Sometime in february, public nominations are culled down to “top 5 in each category”, which is then subject to a combined public vote/awards panel process.

    So even though we have @DrRachie in #1, there’ll be more work to be done in the next phase.

    Fingers crossed that the panel doesn’t consist of woo-mongers too…
