Even before Conan O’Brien’s final day hosting the Tonight Show earlier this month, there was tons of speculation about what his next gig would be. Well, we finally have an answer. Conan O’Brien is now *drum roll please* using Twitter.

Yesterday, O’Brien shook the world with his first epic tweet. “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.” That’s right, Coco is back, and apparently adapting to life as an unemployed middle-aged American with nothing better to do than post ridiculous stuff online… and count his enormous pile of money.

O’Brien is Tweeting under the user name ConanOBrien (yes, it has been verified,) and he currently has more than 250,000 followers. But as the Los Angeles Times notes, he apparently took his sweet time in thinking of his first tweet. The account was registered back on February 18.

It’s also worth noting that Conan’s first Twitter guest, the squirrel, now has a Twitter account too. It’s one and only tweet was a response to Conan, saying “I thought the interview went really well.”

In other news, the Dalai Lama joined Twitter this week. Conan has more followers though.
