Conan O'Brien has officially changed someone's life with the power of his Tweeting. On Friday, Conan decided to follow another Twitter user at random, making Sarah Killen the only person on his follow list, which in turn made her an instant celebrity.

Since then the 19-year-old's life hasn't been the same. "He's changed my life," she told PopEater. Killen is currently planning her wedding, and she gave an interview to PopEater, telling them that she was worried about paying for the costly affair. Now? It's all falling into place.

"It has really helped," Killen said. "I'm getting married on September 25, and we didn't know if we would be able to afford it. Now I'm getting custom made shoes and a dress from Kelima in New York … We're getting a limo, Classic Creations is giving us wedding bands and there's a vineyard in California sending us wine. We've got it all covered now."

Killen said that even if all the hype died down right away, Conan's decision to follow her has still changed her life. Before the Tweet, Sarah had only three followers. Now she's up to nearly 18,000.

Sarah said she got a heads up before Conan started following her. "I was sent a message on Thursday [March 4] asking if it was okay. I replied back on Friday and five minutes later, he was following me. I had a tiny heads up."

Sarah says that Conan is definitely invited to the wedding with a standing invitation to be best man. (Read the full interview with Sarah Killen on PopEater.com)
