Sarah Killen, O'Brien's First Twitter Followee: 'This Is the Most Awesome Day Ever' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

At the end of February, Conan O'Brien joined twitter, and his account, @ConanOBrien, exploded with followers. On Friday, O'Brien decided to follow his first twitter user:

I've decided to follow someone at random. She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs. Sarah Killen, your life is about to change.

Sarah Killen, the lucky followee, was thrilled. "This is the most awesome day ever," Killen told MTV News when they caught up with her for an interview. (VIDEO below.)

After the nod from O'Brien, Killen's follower count jumped from three to over 10,000.

As of this writing, O'Brien is still following Killen, exclusively.

UPDATE 3:58 PM ET -- Conan tweets about Sarah Killen some more.

Sarah likes Twizzlers and craves cantaloupe. I like Raisinets, but melon feels creepy in my mouth. Twitter pals 4 eva! :)
