We all know the web can be a weird place, but sometimes that’s exactly what we need. These nominees can turn YouTube, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram into a virtual funhouse—yet each one found a way to make us think, make us laugh, or make us cringe, and somehow we just couldn’t get enough.
Millions of people participate in
The Shortys to recognize individuals and organizations producing great content on Twitter, Facebook,
Tumblr, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, YouNow, Musical.ly, Vine and the rest of the social web.
The 9th Annual Shorty Awards were held April 23, 2017 in NYC and streamed to the public.
