NEW YORK — MTV has named 23-year-old Gabi Gregg its first "Twitter Jockey."

Gregg won the position Sunday night after a nationwide vote.

The TJ position is the updated version of the network's VJ job, and Gregg will report on pop culture news using Twitter, Facebook, blogs and MTV's website.

Gregg graduated from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts in 2008, where she studied international relations and African-American studies. Gregg is the founder of the fashion blog Young, Fat and Fabulous.

She was raised in Detroit and lives in Chicago.
