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.

    Good grief. He has five kids. I'm sure they will all grow up to be nice, normal kids with such a strong role model. BTW, isn't he a rock start from Mars? Can't we deport him there?

    Charlie Sheen rocks. Anyone who is criticizing him for "partying to hard" is a lame, pathetic loser who should stay at Bible study. Grow up you fat pigs.

    It's sad that a 45 year old man with children is proud of being able to smoke a 7 gram rock. So what? Can you keep a job and support your family, stupid. Why would someone want their claim to fame be that they are a top gun partier? Does being a good partier pay much? Partying is overrated. It cause your children to have to go to dad's funeral because he wanted to act like a child and be the best partier. What makes a fantastic partier? I've been to a lot of parties and I think it's mostly in people's mind if they think they are cool because they are the best partier. It's really stupid and immature, and they are not cool at all. GROW UP!!!

      The only resemblence he possesses is the grief he's causing his family: not from embarassment, but because they're watching their son, brother, husband self-destruct.
