Conan O'Brien joins Twitter

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - If Conan O’Brien’s debut on Twitter is any indication Coco fever is stronger than ever.

Talk show host Conan O'Brien hosts the 54th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles September 22, 2002.

In his first public comment since his final “Tonight Show” on February 12, O’Brien launched a Twitter account Wednesday afternoon, (at)conanobrien, and sent his first tweet. “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me,” he wrote on his page, which also includes his bio summed up as “I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account.”

What followed was a wildfire on the microblogging site. Within the first three hours, O’Brien had more than 100,000 followers, with 1,000 new fans signing up every minute.
