Webby winners take awards with 5-word speeches

Who needs Twitter's 140 characters? Five words were enough for the winners at the 13th annual Webby Awards ceremony, where Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, took the prize for breakout of the year.

NEW YORK —

Who needs Twitter's 140 characters? Five words were enough for the winners at the 13th annual Webby Awards ceremony, where Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, took the prize for breakout of the year.

Sticking to the Webbys' tradition of acceptance speeches limited to just five words, he said: "Creativity is a renewable resource."

Also at Monday's ceremony, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane was honored for his Web series "Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy." Said MacFarlane: "What is this for again?"

Arianna Huffington, whose Huffington Post won for best political blog, said: "I didn't kill newspapers, OK?"

Jimmy Fallon, cited for using the Internet to flog his taking over NBC's "Late Night," said: "Thank God Conan got promoted."
