Conan O’Brien has over half a million followers on Twitter. How many people is he following? One, Sarah Killen (@LovelyButton). On March 5th, @ConanOBrien posted this “I’ve decided to follow someone at random. She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs. Sarah Killen, your life is about to change.”
After two days of her Twitter fame she has nearly 15,000 followers. She has also received a MacBook, a camera, nearly $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day for the Cure Walk, and offers to purchase her wedding ring for her. Her MySpace page has the update “I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to afford a wedding gown. Now I am having a gorgeous one as a wedding gift.”
She also seems a small bit put off by her instant webrity status saying that she hates how careful she has to be with correct spelling and grammar and just generally with what she says now. Below she discusses she new “webfame” and how she has responded to it.
Her fiancee, John Slowik Jr, is also on Twitter (@badghandi89) and has a MySpace if you wish to chat him up. She apparently also has a Tweeting squirrel (@KillensSquirrel) that I’m hoping to see a lot more from. Here is a picture of the happy couple together.
Conan’s most recent tweet? “Sarah likes Twizzlers and craves cantaloupe. I like Raisinets, but melon feels creepy in my mouth. Twitter pals 4 eva! :)” Congratulations on your Twitter fame Sarah…we hope it treats you well.
