Announcing the finalists for Quora Answer of the Year


Is it ever necessary to write over 140 characters? Quora answered that question with its platform that connects people with the best information possible. In their own words: “When you want to know more about something, Quora delivers you answers and content from people who share your interests and people who have first-hand knowledge — like real doctors, economists, screenwriters, police officers and military veterans.”

This Shorty Award will honor an answer (and its author) that’s exceptionally insightful and provocative. The winner will be announced at the 5th Annual Shorty Awards on April 8!
