Tweets from nominees of the newly added Internet categories stirred up questions amongst viewers as Choice Viner Cameron Dallas tweeted to his three million followers that he was informed of winning his Teen Choice Award 6 days before voting ended. Matt Espinosa, another nominee of the night also voiced his opinion as he tweeted, "Basically they picked the people almost 6 days before voting was done and used all of us for promotion." The two viners both deleted their tweets shortly after. However, teens continued to show their outrage. Tweets concerning the voting process flooded Twitter as many upset voters express their opinion of the fixed results. Nevertheless, the TCA rules state that, "Teenasaurus Rox reserves the right to choose the winner from the top four vote generators."
