Charlie Sheen broke a Twitter record! The actor gained one million followers on Twitter in one day as Sheen continued to ride the “tsunami of media.”
The troubled actor’s Twitter record was confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records today: It took Sheen 25 hours and 17 minutes, between March 1 and 2, to reach 1 million followers.
How did the rock star from Mars get one million followers in just one day? Sheen hired consultants, of course!
Media gurus at Ad.ly to helped Sheen build his Twitter following. According to USA Today, a “team of experts at Ad.ly” introduced Twitter to Sheen’s media tsunami. I wonder if Ad.ly will work up a celeb endorsement deal for Charlie or work out a branded product line? It’s scary, sick and wrong but it could happen. The Charlie Sheen story keeps getting weirder and weirder.
Here are some of the best/worst Sheen quotes in my book:
“I am on a drug it’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
“I’m different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man.”
“I’m tired of pretending I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”
“People can’t figure me out, they can’t process me, I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with the normal brain.”
“If you borrowed my brain for five seconds, you’d be like, Dude! Can’t handle it, unplug this bastard!’ It fires in a way that’s maybe not from, uh… this terrestrial realm.”
“I probably took more than anybody could survive. I was banging seven-gram rocks. Because that’s how I roll. I have one speed. I have one gear: Go.”
“I’m not bi-polar, I’m bi-winning. I win here and I win there.”
Not much left to say, is there?
