From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards Best Overall Twitter Presence

Managing a Twitter account for a brand is a 24/7 job that requires creativity, brevity, tact, and exemplary skills at community management. This award honors brands that have used Twitter most effectively to promote, enhance or otherwise endear their brand to the Twitter audience. Unlike Best use of Twitter, this award is for a brand's year-round presence.
