What is #AwesomeHandles?
“What is #AwesomeHandles?” is arguably one question I face the most. To break it down to its most elementary form: #AH is merely a collection of creative, funny, interesting, outrageous [often offensive!] and utterly ridiculous handles on Twitter. Some of these handles I come across myself, while others are referred to me by a number of splendid tweeps out there. The first edition was a collection of handles that I had stumbled upon on my own. However, it would be absolutely unfair for me to say that I put together the other editions by myself. I’ve had a ridiculous amount of support from tweeps who have constantly helped me build this list. So this is me thanking you all! =)
Alright then, let’s get figure out what has to be done now, shall we?
What you have to do
- There’s a total of 250 crowd sourced handles that need your votes! Get clickin’!
- All you’ve got to do is click on the handle to vote for it.
