O'Brien, who said goodbye to "The Tonight Show" on Jan. 22, posted his first tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

"Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me," the funnyman wrote. Conan's Twitter photo shows the super-scruffy former late-night host in a raggedy suit with a chimpanzee on his back. His bio reads, "I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account."

In January, NBC announced they reached a settlement with O'Brien. He reportedly earned $33 million for leaving "The Tonight Show." Rumor has it that FOX will be creating a slot for him, but nothing has been announced.

Jay Leno returns as host on March 1.
