Charlie Sheen Wins Guinness Record For Reaching 1M Twitter Followers
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Troubled actor Charlie Sheen is winning all right – he’s reportedly snapped up the Guinness World Record for the “Fastest Time to Reach 1 Million Followers.”
Guinness officials say that Sheen, who has recently been hospitalized, in rehab and had his twin boys taken away, reached 1 million followers in 25 hours and 17 minutes, according to social media blog Mashable. Sheen also set a Guinness record for “Highest Paid TV Actor Per Episode – Current” at $1.25 million a pop.
Sheen joined Twitter March 1 under the handle @charliesheen, acquiring hundreds of thousands of followers within hours. The account is marked as “Verified.”
Since Sheen’s hospitalization following a wild overnight party and short stint in rehab, his show, “Two and a Half Men,” was suspended after he publicly criticized the show’s producer Chuck Lorre in a radio interview. After the show’s suspension, Sheen has been making the media rounds, making odd statements.
