Twitter, Fallon win Webby Awards

MacFarlane, Huffington also honored for sites

Who needs Twitter’s 140 characters? Five words were enough for the winners at the 13th annual Webby Awards ceremony, where Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, took the prize for breakout of the year.

Sticking to the Webbys’ tradition of acceptance speeches limited to just five words, he said: “Creativity is a renewable resource.”

Also at Monday’s ceremony, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane was honored for his Web series “Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy.” Said MacFarlane: “What is this for again?”

Arianna Huffington, whose Huffington Post won for best political blog, said: “I didn’t kill newspapers, OK?”

Jimmy Fallon, cited for using the Internet to flog his taking over NBC’s “Late Night,” said: “Thank God Conan got promoted.”
