The Shorty Award
for Social Media's Best
Fake Account

What do you mean @darthvader isn’t real? Of course all 235 Justin Bieber Twitter accounts are real... right?

Although we know the various Twitter handles aren’t being run by Jedis, we still love them for their dedication to the persona they envision themselves as and the way they connect through social. Nominate here for your favorite #FakeAccount!

This category will have 7 finalists. These include 3 with the most nominations from the public, 3 chosen by the Shorty Awards Nominating Board made up of professional journalists from around the world, and 1 Wildcard Finalist. See our rules page for more info.
