As you may have heard, we're pretty excited about VidCon. (Reference: Our lack of chill.) 

The three-day festival in Anaheim, California, is a massive celebration of all things online video, with performances, talks, tutorials and parties featuring YouTube's hottest stars. Over the course of the weekend, we'll be interviewing 10 of our YouTube obsessions on the PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly stage, including Ricky Dillon, Amanda Steele and Ingrid Nilsen. 

The festivities just kicked off Thursday morning – the Internet's most famous faces have officially descended upon Anaheim, and, despite lack of sleep (or maybe because of lack of sleep), they're Tweeting up a storm in the process.
