The award show took place on Twitter last night, complete with a host, prizes and even a red carpet – no expenses were spared.

Black Twitter had converged to celebrate the good, bad and ugly of what took place in the Twitter streets this year – and boy was there a lot to cover.

All the people who did the most this year were recognised – from the scandals to the tears to the best couple, all bases were covered.

Surprisingly, the awards took place on a Thursday evening, random, because everyone knows Sunday is when Black Twitter shines its brightest. Have we forgotten the days of watching Date My Family and Our Perfect Wedding on Sunday evenings? Isn’t that where Black Twitter originated?
