Why Her? As MTV’s first Twitter Jockey, she’s a social media pioneer.
Backstage Pass: Gregg gives MTV fans access to the network in a way they’ve never had, reporting from the VMAs, asking MTV employees how they got their jobs and trailing celebrities as they wander the halls of MTV headquarters. “I provide my followers with a behind-the-scenes look into what goes on at MTV, from getting to know our staff to celebrity drop-ins,” she says. “I also give them my perspective and thoughts on pop culture, so they get to know the face and personality behind the tweets.”
What You’d Like Digital Devices to Do: “Offer face-to-face communication like the iPhone app Facetime. I wish it was standard that phones etc… came with that option and you could webcam with people regardless of what network they use.”
Favorite Blog/Web Site: “I love Tumblr! It takes the amazing parts of Twitter but adds great capabilities like photos and videos. Part of the fun of Twitter is the 140-character limit, but it’s nice to have a little more room for creativity.”
