First, Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) wins an award for being the friendliest tweeter, now she — and a bunch of her Vampire Diaries co-stars — is up for a Shorty Award.

If you never heard of the Shorty Awards, here’s a rundown, according to their site: “The Shorty Awards honor the best in social media; recognizing the people and organizations producing real-time short content across Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare and the rest of the social web.

“Every year, millions of people visit the Shorty Awards site to support their favorite social media content creators by tweeting nominations. All those tweets culminate in a highly anticipated awards ceremony that celebrates the winners as chosen by categories. The Shorty Awards also honors the industry's best agencies, brands, and social media professionals.”

Got it? Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore), Nina, Joseph Morgan (Klaus), and Daniel Gillies (Elijah) have all scored nominations. You can either vote for them or nominate someone else.

Per usual, we’re torn because so many of our faves have been nominated, but we hope this one goes to our all-time favorite tweeter, Daniel Gillies.
