The Guinness Book of World Records says that Sheen set the world record for passing one million Twitter followers in the least amount of time (just over 25 hours). The day of his firing from the ultra-popular comedy series Two and a Half Men he recorded over 200,000 followers alone. This isn’t the first time Sheen has been in trouble for his antics and partying but it is the first time he used social media to broadcast his insanity to the world.
Oddly enough Sheen himself did not write the Tweets. He hired Ad.ly, a Los Angeles social media celebrity endorsement company to do all the posting. Sheen stands to earn about $1 million per year for his Twitter endorsement.
The interesting thing about celebrities and Twitter is that they actually make money doing it. The interesting thing about celebrities and Twitter is they actually make money doing it. I guess American’s love a good train wreck, and are more than willing to pay for it.
