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.

    "Charlie Sheen enters the Stratosphere" was what I read at first, and would have been a more appropriate headline.

    I want to party with Charlie just one weekend in Vegas. That would be all I could take.

    He's a idiot. I hope he gets help for his children's sake.

    Oh, he'll crash and burn alright. Wasn't his car, umm, stolen recently and crashed in his neighborhood? If that doesn't get him, "live fast, die young, blah blah" .. then an overdose will. Cheer up, Charlie.

  8. Sorry Charlie

    I watch "Two and a Half Men" occasionally, but if CBS will cast someone else in Charlies place, I would be willing to tune in more often. Honestly, he acts as if he is the sole contributor towards the success of the show. Hollywood is a breeding-ground for narcissistic "special" people who truly believe that they are superior to us poor commoners. Why do these fools get paid so much?

    Going crazy was probably the best thing that could have happened for his career at this point. Look at all the attention he's getting! People are LOVING this.

      @bladyblah, Celebrities, politicians, gov't etc...are everyone's business. They are being paid by customers or taxpayers. Oh this is a democracy country and we do have the 1st 10 amendments. You Bladyblah should join other dictators in the Middle East to keep the public at bay.

      I'd like to thank the corporate sponsors of the show, Madison Avenue advertisers and the Hollywood shills who created this piece of dreck called Charlie Sheen for the benefit of the American consumer, in the land of the freaks and the home of the narcissists.

    Clean and crazy....not any improvement over drunk and violent, Charlie. Have you had a blood test for syphillis, by the way – behavior is now THAT bizarre to raise the question.....

      @Lovesthecappacino, I really love your comments "Je vous aime mon amie". I could not find any other words to define him. Thank you so much.
