I don’t know about you but I couldn’t possibly dream of having two million Twitter followers- though i’m not Charlie Sheen, am i? In less than a week he has joined Twitter and managed to get two million followers.
Troubled celebrities are the most popular in my opinion- they show that they are not immortal to having problems. Charlie Sheen is the celebrity currently most in the spotlight because of his behaviour and actions, and for me everything that has happened recently to him has only made him more popular. Charlie Sheen now has Twitter, he has only been tweeting for under a week and he already has 2 million followers and that figure is rising all the time, as is his bank balance.
Who Is Charlie Sheen? ( In case you don’t know who he is…)

Charlie Sheen is most known for his role as Charlie Harper in Two And A Half Men, and Charlie Crawford on Spin City. In 2010 he became the highest paid actor on television, as Sheen earned $1.8 million per episode on Two And a Half Men, before he was sacked today by CBS and Warner Bros following the recent controversy surrounding him and the show.
It probably didn’t help that he asked for his pay per episode to be nearly doubled to $3 million, and with the world in an unstable economy he could hardly have asked at a worse time. As the highest paid actor on television you would think he would accept what he has- that is an increasingly growing following, and not just on Twitter, and with that his money will rise anyway because people are always after gossip and controversy- and Sheen is never very far from either.
Charlie Sheen Twitter:
With Charlie Sheen’s Twitter account it has become the fastest growing Twitter account in history. He managed to get to the 1 million followers mark in just 25 hours and 17 minutes.
He claims to have joined Twitter in an attempt to reach out to fans, but he already has his first endorsement contract with Internships.com and received 100,000 clicks very easily in under 6 hours.
Celebrities like Charlie Sheen that use Twitter and tweet about the brand get paid x amount per posting, and with the likes of Kim Kardashian being paid around $10,000 per one, it is no wonder that Sheen has jumped on the bandwagon so quickly- he wants the cash and the more followers he has the more money he will get, so all the publicity recently has actually done him the world of good, or his bank balance anyway.
I suppose it just goes to show that any publicity is good publicity….
