     Chattanooga's own Michael Dennis is climbing his way up to becoming a full blown celebrity... Vine celebrity that is.

"Now I'm sittin' somewhere around 123 thousand followers"

     Since this interview was recorded, Michael's followers have increased by more than 15 thousand and continue to rise.
     He says it all started when he decided to download the app just for fun, but one day a video went viral with thousands of likes.

"Ever since then I felt like maybe I could go somewhere with this. So, I started trying to produce more things and writing down my ideas. Now I have like somewhere around 200 ideas I haven't done."

    Michael's ideas have extended beyond home taking him to Los Angeles where he was invited to meet up with other Vine celebrities for the sole purpose of Vining.

     These Viners seem to be slowly making the transition from being Vine famous to just plain famous.
     YouTube has already begun working with many of them and Michael has already received a call to partner.

"I'll get to partner on YouTube and upload my videos and they'll monetize them and it's a way to get paid."

      Having more than a hundred thousand people watch your videos every day is enough to inflate anyone's ego

     (vine: "Get Over Yourself")

      While he jokes about it, he's remained grounded.

"I don't consider myself a celebrity, I just consider myself a guy that enjoys making these videos and hopefully it entertains. "
