      It must be. He's up to 98 now (No. 1 got one more vote).

      Remember!:

      Vote with a tweet. Votes must have a reason after "because..." or they won't count!

      Number 1 might be ok, she just is just not Ben. I understand she goes after NDAA at least. So I wouldn't call her names unless I knew her, although I want to beat her vote count, obviously.

      Yeah, and his account wasn't verified for the longest time, we have to make up ground. Here are the qualifications, though, and I think he is pretty good with social media:
      The winner will be selected based upon the number of nominations they’ve received, the impact and creativity of their tweets, and the level of innovation in their use of social media as judged by the Shorty Awards Real-Time Academy. Only those who have been verified as a journalist by Muck Rack are eligible for this Award.
      Or is it saying WE have to be innovative in our nomination tweets? I think I'll find that clip of him interviewing Obama about NDAA and tweet it with a nomination.....

      OK, I tweeted another nomination using Ben Swann's Obama interview where he asked about NDAA FIRST OF ANYONE, and about the Kill list etc. Obama was expecting a low key 'local paper' interview, I suspect.
