The former late-night talk show host significantly increases the following of an unsuspecting Michigan woman.
Michigan (WiredPRNews.com) – Former late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien’s decision to follow a Twitter user who had only three followers last week has yielded surprising results. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), after O’Brien chose Michigan woman Sarah Killen as his sole followee, her following was boosted to approximately 20,000 users as of Wednesday, which has already helped her score a new computer and help for her wedding.
O’Brien is quoted by the AP as posting on Twitter Friday, “I’ve decided to follow someone at random… She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs. Sarah Killen, your life is about to change.”
Killen is quoted in the report as stating of the response she subsequently received, “It’s totally nuts.” She is reportedly asking her followers to support charities such as Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
