The votes are in and have been independently counted and verified. Which means I looked at them.
With a staggering 42 percent of the vote, we had a runaway winner for Tweet of the Year. Congratulations Freddie Gavita.
We had a tie for second place, both with 11 percent of votes. Well done Shirley Cooney and Daniel Walker.

Overheard girl on the phone: "Yeah I'm in @WHampstead. It's nothing special, it's not flash, but it's tidy"

Freddie joins the Hall of Fame:
Just seen schoolboy in Costa ordering latte and biscotti before school while his mum tried to hold the 139 bus for him. Only in @WHampstead!

Overheard conversation in #WHampstead a little boy saying to his Nan 'I'm 9th fastest in the class but I know what I'm best at-politeness'

I'm walking through West Hampstead with a Poundland carrier bag, single-handedly bringing down the property market.

WHL will be catching up with Freddie to give him his (very local) prize as soon as possible. Congratulations to everyone who made the shortlist.
