Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, for following me on Twitter

fallon

I love being a social media professional, and today made me love my job even more.

For as long as I can remember, I have been trying to get Jimmy Fallon to follow me on Twitter. I have been tweeted by the @FallonTonight account, which is awesome, but until today I couldn’t get Jimmy’s attention.

And to top it all off, Fallon followed me as I was liveblogging the Apple iPhone and Apple Watch announcement. So I was already excited about that. Two of the ads for the iPhone were voiced by Fallon and Justin Timberlake, so I tweeted that the ads were awesome and just like that Fallon followed me back.

Now keep in mind: I’m no crazy fan or stalker. I just happen to really admire Fallon’s work – I have since Saturday Night Live. And I really appreciate when celebrities are down to Earth. I have had extensive conversations with William Shatner, but unfortunately he still hasn’t followed me back. (someday, I hope!)

I didn’t exactly hide my excitement when it happened:

And when I direct messaged to thank him, he replied.

Class act.

This definitely goes into the books as one of my favorite days in social media.
