Charlie Sheen joins Twitter, slams Nancy Grace and Chuck Lorre (again)
March 1, 2011 by Beatweek
It took Charlie Sheen all of one tweet on his brand new Twitter account to amass a third of a million followers today, which the newly “unemployed” (his word) actor taking to the social mediaverse after seeing production on his show Two And A Half Men halted. The show’s season came to a sudden end after Sheen, who has seen his share of personal troubles spill over into the public eye of late, attacked show creator Chuck Lorre in an interview last week.
Sheen’s first tweet was a twitpic in which he declared himself to be “winning,” just as his Twitter bio lists him as an “Unemployed Winner.” His account @charliesheen is in fact verified by Twitter, which means it’s really him as opposed to the several impostors who’ve claimed to be “Charlie Sheen” on Twitter of late, either for deceitful or satirical reasons. Sheen’s second tweet managed to take a backhanded swipe at Lorre while explaining just how thoroughly uninterested he is in fulfilling a certain interview request: “Just got invited to do the Nancy Grace show… I’d rather go on a long road trip with Chuck Lorre in a ’75 Pacer.”
Interestingly, Sheen has thus far chosen to follow a mere ten Twitter users, despite the hundreds of thousands he’s gained thus far today. Among those he’s currently following: Alyssa Milano, along with talk show hosts Piers Morgan and Howard Stern. We’re guessing Nancy Grace’s Twitter account won’t be added to that list any time soon. Or, for that matter, Chuck Lorre’s.
