The past couple days on the twitter had a number of Lebanese initiated hashtags trend worldwide, the latest was #farouj and another was #smabeirut and while the first was @ralphsaade ‘s idea and somehow was one of its kind although most tweets were such as “WTF?! #farouj is trending?” or “why is #farouj trending?!?”
The second #smabeirut (social media awards beirut) grabbed the Lebanese twitter community’s attention because it involved voting… And while many people voted, most Lebanese (including myself) went on the website to see the nominees… And I’m sure the vast majority did the same…
Actually, lol :$ to be honest i voted twice…
Once in the blog of the year category, voted for hummusnation and once for @mishoricha for most creative instagram account and while hummusnation deserves in my opinion the title of that category, misho who is my friend does not in any way deserve to win the most creative instagram account category but i voted for him anyways because I want him to win it and thus allow us to mock the whole thing.. hehe (no offense misho)
I mean most categories included people and organisations who were clearly not deserving and I wonder how the organizers think they can gain credibility this way..
In a future post I’m going to be handing out my own social media awards, stay tuned because my version includes special categories that starts with:
(الأكثر اثارة للمتاعب على تويتر)
and doesn’t end with:
(صاحب أقوى سحسوح على تويتر)
Please use the comment box to suggest any special category you’d like to nominate someone for or simply have it included in the awards.
