The top three most reacted-to stars from Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards are all internet-famous. While they may not be popular with the over-20 set, Vine and YouTube celebs elicited the most emotional reactions from the Teen Choice audience.

- Viner Matt Espinosa (@themattespinosa) was mentioned in 7.6% of all reactions
