"So much to say about how I feel right now, but keeping it to 140 characters or less I'll say, #VMAs here I come! THANK U to #ZYNC, #MTV and most of all the fans whose votes got me here! I promise I won't let you down! #ZYNCmtvTJ," wrote GREGG, who will be engaging MTV fans on the social network messaging service as the network's first 'TJ.'.
