Via GraphicLeftovers.comIn a week where President Obama won the Nobel Prize (ooh, prizes announced on Twitter; big whoop says UK’s High Court) after being nominated less than a fortnight into his term, will one of your aspirational tweets lead to a Pulitzer Prize? Let’s look at more prize developments in the Twitterverse this week.

KANYE WEST AWARD

Make your acceptance speech better with Speakers: Learn from Twitter Hecklers from DontGetCaught.biz and How Speakers Should Integrate Social Into Their Presentation from Web-Strategist.com.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD

6 Great Twitter Quiz and Polling Apps from ReadWriteWeb.com.

ACADEMY AWARD FOR BEST PICTURE

@copyblogger says “What if you could only speak in 140 character snippets in real life? Hilarious video” [warning: crude]. Or more literally, was the best picture this image of Twitter vs Facebook vs MySpace from the Chicago Tribune? Or perhaps Visualizing conversations on Twitter and Flickr from Flink Labs?

And while we’re out on the red carpet, let’s take a look at Who Rules The Social Web? from InformationIsBeautiful.net.

EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR

Workers of the world–unite. But not online. A Majority of Companies Prohibit Social Networking on the Job, CIO Survey Reveals says Robert Haft, Companies Say No to Friending or Tweeting according to Law.com, which leads to Oh the Irony from StopBlocking.org.

TEACHER OF THE YEAR

100 Twitter Feeds To Make You a Better Teacher from OnlineCourses.org

HANDYMAN OF THE YEAR

Whoever gets this prize might use The Software Developer’s Ultimate Guide to Twitter Tools from PDFConverter.com or Ident Engine’s javascript library that retrieves and aggregates profiles from across the web.

TWITTER PRIES DATA OUT OF THE STREAM

Twitter Talking Separately to Microsoft and Google About Big Data-Mining Deals according to All Things D, Uncovering Connections on Twitter Could Become Big Business says ReadWriteWeb.com and is Social Media: The Next Great Gateway for Content Discovery? asks Nielsen. Brian Solis was Revealing the People Defining Social Networks as The Speed of Share (TechCrunch) made Clive Thompson wonder How the Real-Time Web Is Leaving Google Behind.

MILE HIGH INDUCTEE

Lufthansa will tweet your altitude, location and departure/arrival times for you. Adobe Air not required.

THE GOLDEN NUGGET

Golden Twitter Nuggets & Takeaways From SMX East from Search Engine Land.

WWWTWITTER.com: BEST WEBSITE EVER?

EYES ON THE PRIZE

TweetMeme Analytics Show You How Retweets Spread on Twitter (Mashable), Tweetmeme and TechCrunch.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN TWEET

So Your Client Says They Want to Get on Twitter (CSS-Tricks.com) then here’s How to Demo Twitter (AllTop) and then tell them about Using Twitter to Form Communities of Practice (eLearningStuff) and What Can Twitter Do for My Library and Community. If they’re still not sure, hand them the Twitter Decision Flowchart, but make sure they know about the Ten Things You Need to Stop Tweeting About (The Oatmeal.com).

But what should they tweet about? WordPress users can now automatically tweet new posts if you want to go with the quasi-robot approach. CMS on Twitter Poll Results shows a more personal touch by asking your audience instead of assuming you know. One thing you may not want to know is exactly where your audience is tweeting, such as from the bathroom as Tweeting More Ubiquitous Than Other Electronic Socializing (Media Post).

LONGEST ACCEPTANCE SPEECHES

Long lists still rule.

CRACKER JACK PRIZE — IT’S FREE

FREE PowerPoint Twitter Tools from SapWeb 2.0.

And if we had a Twitter comedian handing out these prizes, they might say “Hey, you know how journalists count? 1… 2… Trend!” (from @sdkstl via  @r).

Who else deserves a Twitter prize this week? We could try Crowdeye Twitter Search and Your Headlines on Twitter from TwittLink and Find shareable lists of people on Twitter from TwilList for ideas, but I’d rather hear who you’d nominate this week. Share them below.

    Thats really cool. Whats in the picture? Atari? I was searching google for free twitter stuff when I found your blog. I am giving away 68 megabytes (4 huge downloads) of twitter stuff to people just for following me as a way to promote my site. Its called the “Twitter Follower Explosion Pack”.

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover somebody who
    truly understands what they are discussing on the internet.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
