Filed as News with 3 comments

fallonThe Webby Awards winners were revealed today in a wide range of categories, including websites, online film and video, interactive advertising, and mobile websites.

As expected, Webby Breakout of the Year goes to Twitter, which has grown by 900% in the last year alone.
