As December winds down, it's time to reflect on the year that is drawing to a close. One of the most well known and prestigious looks back is TIME's annual Person of the Year issue honoring the individual that, "for better or for worse, ...has done the most to influence the events of the year." Since it is 2013 after all, TIME has added a social twist to their person of the year selection process. Twitter.
If you have ever wanted to have input into the selection of the person of the year, now is your chance! Simply tweet with the hashtag #TIMEPOY with your selection! It's that easy! TIME will be calculating the votes and using them to help determine their person of the year. However, time is running out! Today is the LAST day to get your vote in! So if you want to make your voice be heard, take to Twitter and tweet! If you aren't on Twitter, you can still vote via TIME's online voting option here. It features a YES/NO vote format or a face-off.
If you have been waiting for even more proof that social media has ingrained itself into our lives, look no further. Social media serves to connect people and give them a voice, for better or worse.
As of Monday, Miley Cyrus was in the lead. Will your vote change that? It might! Tell your friends and take to Twitter! There's still time left to participate. Have you participated in #TIMEPOY? Who did you vote for? Share it with us in the comments...just play nice! No bashing anyone's choice!
