Twitter Face-Off Finals

And Then There Were Two… There are tons of great Twitter profile pics out there – and tons of eggs.  A couple of weeks ago, I set out to find the person with the BEST Twitter profile pic.   Some were nominated by friends and fans, others I just stumbled across during my usual Twitter travels.  They have been battling it out every week. Thanks to everyone who has voted along the way and helped us make it this far. We started out with 16 great Twitter profile photos and have narrowed the list down to the final two. Unfortunately, only one can walk away with the crown – so who will it be? The Finalists It comes down to @JeremyCowart and @Michrod.   Both are pretty dang good profile pics.  It is really going to come down to personal preference on this one. Please take a good look at both profile pics and vote for the winner.  Then, leave a quick comment and let me know WHY you chose it. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Let The Final Voting Begin! Polls close Tuesday night, so please vote now! *****   <a href=”http://larry236.polldaddy.com/s/twitter-face-off-finals”>Take Our Survey!</a>
