Nobel Peace Prize Organization Forced To Hunt Down Winner On Twitter


If you're doing something that warrants winning the Nobel Peace Prize, you're probably a little busy. The people of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were too busy to answer the phone... from the Nobel Peace Prize committee.

On Friday morning, the OPCW won the Nobel Peace Prize and when the Nobel organization couldn't get ahold of anyone there, it took to Twitter.

It took so long to get in touch with OPCW that the winners missed the webcast.

Thankfully, the OPCW eventually got the message.
