Conan O’Brien is one of the funniest people out there. I would go as far as calling him a comedy genius. But perhaps the person who thought of naming him a LinkedIn influencer is the true genius.
His first “influential” post on LinkedIn is typical Conan. But a lot of people, including “real influencers”, are angry and voicing their opinion on the comment section of his post.
As of this morning, there were almost 1,000 comments. Many are saying that Conan missed the point on becoming an influencer. Others are applauding Conan for giving his usual sarcastic point of view on the whole influential business: “it feels good to be on LinkedIn among my peers – attractive, fabulously successful plutocrats who laugh at their own jokes.”
Check out Conan’s post and then read some of the comments:
