Yep. He joined twitter a couple days ago.
You see, I wouldn’t have known about this if it weren’t for The Huffington Post. It is amazing where you find news.
At first, it wasn’t certain, but just an hour and a half after the inaugural tweet, Twitter added a “verified account” stamp to the page.
Conan’s first tweet, posted at approximately 6 p.m. Feb. 24, 2010, said: “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.”
Within 10 minutes of his first tweet, he had a few thousand followers. And in his first half hour, he was up to 15,000 followers.
His bio reads, “I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account.”
I don’t know a lot about the personal life of Conan, but it appears to me that he has an incredible outlook on life. I’m still impressed by his farewell speech. If you haven’t seen it, you should.
