Norm is Canada's most valuable Tweeter

It was the year of @Norm, with the Ward 40 Toronto city councillor gaining international attention for his dad-joke friendly Twitter feed and tendency to defend Drake against bullies.

It should come as no surprise then that Twitter users voted Norm Kelly as Canada's Most Valuable Tweeter. Yes, #MVTCanada2015 (not to be confused with MTV Canada) is a thing.

Twitter Canada pitted 16 Canadian superstars against each other in a round robin-style tournament. Users would then vote to determine who would move on in the bracket.

Norm Kelly beat out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the final round, sweeping the competition with a whopping 34,019 votes.
