Welcome to the 2010 Twitterati awards.  Please grab your gift bag on the way out.  The winners this year are:  

FAVORITE TWITTER ACCOUNT OF THE YEAR IS…

@MaudNewton.  Hands down, unanimous. 

IF YOU’RE GOING TO FOLLOW ONE TWITTER ACCOUNT

Richard Nash is the one @R_Nash

TWITTER PERSON MOST LIKELY TO MAKE OUR MORNING A BIT BETTER

The always funny and witty @Slaughter90210


THE PERSON MOST LIKELY TO TWEET SOMETHING NICE ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE

It’s really no surprise that so many people follow @Emmastraub


FUNNIEST FAKE ACCOUNT FOR A FORMER OBSERVER EDITOR

Sorry @Wise_Kaplan, but we need to give it to @CrankyKaplan


HELPING TO FILL THE SOCCER-SHAPED VOID IN YOUR LIFE POST-WORLD CUP

The intelligent and witty analysis of soccer provided by @SoccerByIves


RIDICULOUSLY COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE OF ALL THINGS LITERARY

The combination of in-depth interviews and righteous journalism contributed by @DrMabuse.


SMART, CIVIL POLITICAL DEBATE

The periodic, ongoing policy discussions between @mattyglesias and @reihansalam

GIVEN OUR COLLECTIVE FONDNESS FOR ‘THE MELTING SEASON’

It should not be a surprise that we heartily endorse @jamiattenberg’s feed as well. 

SURREAL MISSIVES FROM SMART FOLKS

The trifecta of @grayamelia, @blakebutler, and @warrenellis

BEST TWITTER ACCOUNTS TO EXPECT SWEET RETWEETS FROM

It’s a tie between @Largeheartedboy and @electriclit


FAVORITE BOOKSTORE TWITTER ACCOUNT

Also a tie between @WORDBrooklyn @Mcnallyjackson and @Housingworksbks.  Especially when they get in weird Twitter squabbles.


IF THE INDIE PUBLISHER THING DOESN’T WORK OUT, THERE’S ALWAYS COMEDY
We like the fact that the only literary things @NYTyrant tweets about usually involves his hatred of Jonathan Franzen.


BEST BOOK GOSSIP
@Galleycat, naturally.
