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.
