We love the Shorty Awards, a great way to honor and recognize some of the best people and organizations on Twitter and social media. In its third year, this user-generated awards event is a great way to honor those who “get” what makes a strong social media profile.

This year, we would we like you to consider nominating three very cool Twitter accounts we hold dear in our hearts. We think that is we can rally our social media network to submit nominations now, we can get these three profiles into the top 6 and into the next round of public voting in February. So here are our three:

  • Raul Ramos y Sanchez: Raul is the award-winning author of AMERICA LIBRE and A HOUSE DIVIDED. He is a true gentleman, a talented writer, and named of the the Top 2011 Latino Writers to look for by LatinoStories.com. He shares all the time on social media and is a model of how an author can market his works effectively. To nominate Raul in the #author category, just click here or on the image below:

  • Being Latino: The largest and most active community of online Latinos on Facebook. Founded by Lance Rios, this group has over 52,000 members on Facebook. Being Latino promotes a collective world where Latino culture, news, art, politics and other topics can be shared and discussed.

  • LATISM = Latinos in Social Media: The BEST online Twitter community ever. This group is always sharing, always connecting and always supporting. More profiles on Twitter need to be like LATISM.

We love Lance Ríos and Being Latino. We really do. You know why? Because Lance has created an amazing group on Facebook called Being Latino that is one of the most active and engaging groups we have ever seen (17K followers are growing, and people actually engage here). Being Latino is a daily stop for v5. We love the content and the comments.

We are amazed by the interaction and you know why? Because all Lance does is get the conversation going. He asks questions, focuses on topics, and invites people to participate. Lance is a social media rockstah, not because he spends his time preaching about the values of social media, but because he just DOES, dives in, works hard, stays honest and humble, and most importantly: helps other people so those people can shine.


So, we are honored, incredibly honored to be on the Being Latino blog this morning with: #VivaViernes: How One Tweet Can Start a Movement. On this amazing Friday, we want to say GRACIAS to Lance and Being Latino. ¡Ustedes son increíbles! You are incredible!

Gracias mil. A thousand thanks.
