Stephen Colbert is now a proud champion of top social media standing as the winner of the 2010 Golden Tweet Award. The first title and trophy of its type to ever be given was presented on primetime television by none other than the co-founder of Twitter, Biz Stone.

In light of the oil spill, the host of the Colbert Report had tweeted "In honor of oil-soaked birds, 'tweets' are now 'gurgles'" which was retweeted more than 44,000 times, topping the Twitter charts of the year. In light of his 2010 Golden Tweet Award victory, the satirical Stephen Colbert exclaimed "I won Twitter! I have harpooned the fail whale! Tonight we dine on Kutcher!"
