Charlie Sheen enters the Twittersphere with a bang

It's official: Charlie Sheen has entered the Twittersphere, and people want to hear what he has to say.

The actor turned "unemployed winner" had amassed more than 150,000 followers (and counting) on Twitter before he posted his first tweet Tuesday night, less than two hours after joining. Check out this chart on "The Atlantic" to get an idea of what that kind of growth looks like.

His first tweet - complete with Twitpic - invites followers to choose their preferred vice. On the left, a bottle of "Naked" fruit juice, held lovingly by a busty blonde thought to be porn star Bree Olson - one of two "goddesses" who have been accompanying Sheen on his talk-show rounds and public appearances. On the right, a bottle of chocolate milk, held by a smirking Sheen.

Within an hour of its posting, the Twitpic alone had 726 comments (and counting!).

Sheen has been talking a lot since declaring himself "at war" with CBS after the network canceled production of the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men."

On Monday, Sheen threatened to sue CBS over the action. He told NBC he wanted $3 million per episode instead of the $2 million he was previously making, but he later backed off that assertion, telling CNN's Piers Morgan that his only hard-and-fast demand was that he and the crew get paid for another eight weeks of work - a demand to which CBS appears to have partially assented.

    It would be poetic justice if another production company hired the junked crew and writers...just to snubbed CBS. Call David Letterman and Conan for the details...

    Why are we bothering with this "news" about a guy who is making 2 million per show and can't keep himself in check. There are other shows to watch and he deserves nothing further. He is not the only pritty face on TV and is not that talented on his own; without the writers, crew, other actors and many other he could not do much. He only plays himself, boozing, womenizing jerk.

      The show was based on him and his lifestyle. Now you're complaining that he "only plays himself, boozing, womenizing jerk"? Of course he does, that's the point!

      More power to ya, Charlie.

    Charlie Sheen and Lindsey Lohan.. Don't you think they would make a good couple? They would be in the news a lot fighting to see who gets the most attention!

    The last interview I saw on TV made me think the guy is suffering from a terminal disease. He looks gaunt, pale, and wasted.

    How soon before the overdose? Aren't we overdue? He could save a lot of lives by serving as a highly visible example.
