Jimmy Fallon Thinks Ronan Farrow's Tweets Are Hilarious

Posted: Updated:

Ronan Farrow has been getting lots of praise lately for his humorous live-tweeting, and now even Jimmy Fallon is admitting he's impressed.

The "Late Night" host, who will soon take over the "Tonight Show" from Jay Leno, told Farrow during an interview Wednesday night that he is a big fan of his twitter account.

"I follow you on Twitter because, gosh, you make me laugh," Fallon said.

He then preceded to read some of Farrow's funniest tweets aloud, like the one about Frank Sinatra, the Grammys and Obama's State of the Union address.

"God, it made me laugh," he said referring to one tweet in particular about the rumors that Frank Sinatra could be Farrow's biological father. "You just killed this one and put it to rest."

Here is the tweet, in case you missed it:

But while it's clear that Fallon is definitely a follower of Farrow, the new MSNBC host admitted that the admiration is mutual.

"I'm ripping off your show in all sorts of ways," Farrow said of his new show that will debut in February. "I'm just following in your footsteps. This was all a plan to become second fiddle to you."
