In June, MTV put out a major want ad: The network was looking for someone to be the first-ever Twitter DJ, or TJ, and make a cool $100K per year in the position. The job was filled last night during a live broadcast of Follow Me: The Search for the First MTV TJ.

Gabi Gregg (@gabifresh), a 24-year-old plus-size fashion blogger from Detroit, was selected to be in charge of the new @MTVTJ Twitter account. “My main goal is to really connect with the audience,” Gregg said upon accepting the TJ title. “I don’t want to be the same as the MTV Twitter; I want to keep it personable and keep in touch with the followers. I want to give them a voice.”
