Below are the winners of last night's inaugural Y@ Speak Awards, honoring the best of 2012-2013 New Orleans Twitter users. The event, held at Publiq House on Freret Street, featured guest host Ian Hoch, a pre-recorded "thank you" video from best celebrity account nominee Mannie Fresh, highlights from a year in Y@ Speak, and bare-fisted duels, death threats and general saloon-style anarchy among the winners and losers. You can catch up following the hashtag #twitterprom.

The winners were selected from an online ballot based on an online, user-submitted nomination ballot.
