reported.



In a live show entitled

Follow Me

, Gregg defeated her four competitors by winning the popular vote from viewers.



Gabi

Greeg, who used to tweet as

@gabifresh

, is now known as

@mtvtj

and guess how much she will earn out of this. Believe it or not, she will be paid a whopping $100,000 per annum. Who needs college when a tweet can earn you that much!



MTV’s new TJ spent her first unofficial day at work tweeting up a storm and posting pictures of her winning moments on twitpic asking her followers to comment on it.
