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.

    Oh Jack – your comparing someone you vote for to run your country and a dude that works for a living acting like a male sl_ _ – If your looking for a role model – maybe you should ask your Momy who you should pick.

    Judd Nelson would make a better "Charlie" than Charlie.

    This is what drug addicts do. Smoke too much pcp or crack and you eventually start acting like this. A relative of mine did EXACTLY the same thing, now he's in jail for 12 years for armed robbery. I feel sorry for his family because you can't do anything after the interventions except hope and pray that they don't kill anyone.

    could be a PR stunt to up the ratings. Either way, he totally has the right to do what he wants on his own time.
