Shorty awards are given to the best producers of short, real-time content on the web. So we're starting our write-in campaign. We created a category -- #jobs -- and we already have about a half dozen votes. We'll need a few thousand votes to win. Vote for us by selecting "other" and writing-in the #jobs hashtag.
Why are we doing this? Partly because we think that getting an award would be awesome. We'd also like to bring attention to #jobs on Twitter. With unemployment taking its toll in so many communities, we want to make sure that jobseekers use every available tool -- including Twitter -- to find gainful employment.
