“Social media has changed the way that we all live, work, play, learn and share. The Shorty Awards celebrates those who understand that 140 characters can speak volumes and that a spontaneously shared image can travel the world in a heartbeat and know how to use that understanding to its best effect.” –Simon Lowden, CMO Pepsi Beverages CompanyMember Directory
