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.

    Its got to be a bit! Sheen and Lorre have cooked this up in the tradition of Joaquin Phoenix and Andy Kaufman.

    My sympathy is with those poor kids of his. What a messed up man to have for a father. He is so far gone that he really believes that he's living his life in a normal and healthy way. He is so mentally ill.

    Why don't you pay attention to things that are going on in your own life instead of following Charlie Sheen around all day and listening to what he has to say?

    Who isn't a fan of a train wreck? If you deny it, you're lying.

    @Charlie Please put that tin foil cap on your head like I instructed you. Also, roller-blade up and down Rodeo Drive naked with the sign reading "The End Is Nigh" while screaming "my fangs drip of lion blood" and everyone will understand you perfectly clear.

    He'll now lose his grip and turn into the old burned-out, strung-out Hollywood cliche. He looks like some typical old, skinny, diseased, strung-out junkie rambling on and on about himself. He looks pathetic - Like some homeless junkie you see on the streets fiending for his next fix rambling on about how he's the king of the world and knows the secrets to the universe. You're just a grandiose, manic, self-absorbed, artistic troubled genius no one gets eh Charlie?
    It must be terribly painful to be so special.

    I'm sure his death will be an absolutely spectacular one. Here's another one Abe Vigoda will outlive.

    His body will fail him soon...it will be a major shut down from which, there is a good chance he won't be able to come back from. He's on the downside of health and going faster every day...very sad.
