Important news! In a move Coach Taylor probably would not condone, Friday Night Lights favorite Connie Britton finally joined Twitter, sending her first oh-so characteristic tweet: “Hey y’all!’

The actress, who currently stars on ABC’s Nasvhille as Tami Taylor 2.0, racked up nearly 10.5 thousand followers in the 30 minutes since she sent her first tweet. (Typical.) Fans are bound to look to Britton for advice when in need of a pick-me-up after a football loss, or maybe just for life guidance.

But whether Britton will be sharing promotional teasers for upcoming projects or just insights on how to get perfect wavy hair, her followers are sure to have clear eyes and full hearts.

Say it with me again now: “Hey y’all!”
