Conan Twitter Tracker: Freckle poetry and more

We can now say that we’ve made it.

Conan’s freckles posted a special note to Show Tracker today, thanking us for our Conan Twitter Tracking. It isn’t every day that a celebrity’s freckles reaches out, so we want to say ‘Backatcha, buddies.’ (Buddies=plural, Freckles=plural).

It was a very enlightening note because we learned that these are not just your average melanin dots--these puppies are poetic. Check out the haiku they wrote to Conan for reaching 500,000 followers: ‘half a million ‘buds’ / a bouquet of followers / blooming love Conan!’


Isn’t that beautiful? It brings tears to our eyes.

Let’s see what the rest of the CoCo pals have been up to:

Conan: I just had the fries at the McDonald’s in Culver City near the Lady Foot Locker. SO AWESOME. If you can get there, ORDER THOSE FRIES.

The Beard: @conanobrien If you get any french fry grease on me I swear I will have my revenge. What revenge, you ask? I’ll make you itch.

MoCo the monkey: @ConanOBrien But tell them about the Chicken Nuggets you got me from the McDonald’s in W.Hollywood across from Rite Aid! ORDER THOSE NUGGETS

Squirrel: He’s finally home! Checked trash, found 3 empty fry containers. Pig. *shakes paw*

The Taurus (new to our list) hasn’t tweeted since March 1. And the Sharpie hasn’t tweeted in 21 hours. Slackers!

We’ve saved the best for last. Or maybe we buried the lead. Whatever. Show Tracker is investigating an ominous reference the freckles made in their note to us. ‘Please note that Conan Himself has reached over 500,000 followers, putting him at approximately 473,572 more than the Chin,’ the freckles wrote.

Was that a crack at that guy who’s hosting ‘The Tonight Show’ again or does that have to do with nasty, itchy beard issues?

We’re on the case and we will not rest until we get to the bottom of it. We vow.

In the meantime, here’s what the Conan Twitter Tracker count looks like today:

Conan 510,183
Squirrel 1,486
Beard 350
Monkey 194
Sharpie 148
Freckles 144
Taurus 53
