What better way to remind the world that you are still alive than to put up a Twitter account. Conan O’Brien is currently “in between jobs,” so he decided to be more productive about his free time by joining Twitter.
On February 24, his first Tweet sent his global fanbase on a following frenzy: “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.” About 18 hours later, he gained over 280,000 followers. Today he officially has over 450,000 followers.
Ladies and gentlemen, Conan O’Brien has taken over Twitter. Ashton, you better watch out!
No, he hasn’t given into the TMI world of microblogging. He doesn’t really tell us what he’s eating, drinking, sniffing, and screwing every waking moment of the day. In fact, he’s typed in only five Tweets to this day, including the most recent: “This is only my 5th tweet and I’m already exhausted. My God, how does Ashton do it?”
He is funny. Period. You may no longer see him on his NBC late-night spot, but hardcore fans will tell you that anything Conan puts out there is deliciously addicting.
This one’s from last Friday: “Today I connected all the freckles on my arm with a Sharpie. It spells out RIKSHAZ9LIRK. Clearly I am The Chosen One.”
Yes you are, Coco!
