At the first-ever EW Fest on Saturday, Vine star Marcus Johns had more than six seconds to discuss his life, his goals, and what it means to be a social influencer.

“I decided I wanted to make a Vine every single day, but I wanted to do it a little differently,” Johns said of how he got his start. “I wanted to treat it like YouTube where you try to get a following.” Mission accomplished: Johns now has 6.4 million followers and growing.

Moderated by Tubefilter’s Drew Baldwin, fans can watch the EW Fest Digital Influencers panel above.
