There's no support like that of the Tweeple – if you want to see change, Twitter's where you initiate it. What started as a rant about how Bollywood awards work with their questionable practices, the Tweeple Film Awards, or the Twi-fi Awards came to become a movement for change. The account was started on the 1st of January this year, and has already raised close to 1,500 followers.
The rules of the awards have been formed from discussions on Twitter. The way the awards will work is that a jury of notable film critics like Rajeev Masand and Anupama Chopra, and film buffs on Twitter (nominated by Twitterati) choose films for pre-selected categories. A list of final nominations is made and then voted on for a particular number of days. Right now, Twitter film buffs have been voted for the jury and tomorrow the selection will be announced. After this, categories and films for the categories will be voted on. After that vote is over, the final vote for winners will be announced.
