I vote for @the_real_shaq in the Shorty Awards Finals for #sports because he is the Big Twitt and is very quotatious!

@shortyawards #humor @the_real_shaq -- shacula? hillarious!

@shortyawards recommend @the_real_shaq in the Shorty Award category #sports because he is by far the most SHAQulous of anyone in sports.
