MTV has most certainly strayed from its roots over the years. Not that following the ol' dollar sign is a bad thing, but we digress. After a lengthy search-and-vote process, the network has selected its first-ever Twitter jockey, one Gabi Gregg from Detroit. She'll purportedly be relocated to New York City and given a six-figure salary, all while reporting on "pop culture news using Twitter, Facebook, blogs and MTV's website." MTV calls this position a "modern-day re-imagining of the pioneering MTV VJ," with Gabi's first assignment being at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12th. So, did social networking just kill the video star?
