On Friday, Conan O'Brien named his first (and only) new media sidekick.

Sorry, Andy Richter, but the chosen one is officially Sarah Killen.


We know very little about Killen ourselves. She apparently lives in Michigan and likes peanut butter.

Oh ya, and she's the only person O'Brien is following on Twitter.

"I've decided to follow someone at random. She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs. Sarah Killen, your life is about to change," the former Tonight Show host tweeted Friday.

Last month, O'Brien quickly became a Twitter super star, accruing half a million followers. For weeks, he refused to follow other users. That's no longer that case.

And how does Killen feel about her new status?

"Having a lame a** day, Russell Bigos is an idiot. And Conan O'Brien is THE S***," according to her feed.

The Conan Effect is starting to take hold. Within a few minutes of O'Brien's shout-out, Killen began amassing followers. As of 1:30 p.m., she was gaining about a follower a second, and is no longer having a bad day.

"OMG. this is Fantastically exciting," she tweeted.
