Who would have thought that one day Conan O’Brien would be able to change the fortunes of a Twitter followee — well the chat show host has by becoming her follower. Since doing so she has gone from three followers to almost 24,000 — along with a free Apple iMac.
According to the Guardian 19-year-old Sarah Killen whose Twitter name is LovelyButton is still coming to terms with how popular she has become in just a short amount of time. The host-in-exile did warn her that this would happen, not only has she received that iMac from a Florida businessman but also a wedding dress donated to her by a New York designer.
Killen still has a way to go until she has her wedding, as she has only saved up $30 so far — we wonder if she will receive any more gifts to help her and future husband John Slowik Jr. get married.
We have always known the power of the Internet — Twitter especially — but who would have thought that one-day you would go from 3 followers to over 20,000 and be showered with gifts.
