Charlie Sheen now holding a world record #winning

Some of you may, or  may not,  know that Charlie Sheen recently joined Twitter.  When I say recently, I mean not even 48 hours ago.  With all of the controversy that is surrounding Sheen and his television sitcom Two and a Half Men, he has been the talk of many. Sheen created a Twitter account March 1st and less than 24-hours later he had a little over 1 million followers. This is record-breaking. According to an article published earlier this morning from Mashable, Sheen has received a new record: “Fastest Time to Reach 1 Million Followers” as a Guinness World Record.

Here’s the sticky part. With all that is going on about Sheen, I’m not too sure now would be the best time to be creating a Twitter.  As far as the 1.2 million followers, I’m not sure which of the reasons why they’re following him: because of their love for him or because of their interest and entertainment with his lifestyle and chaos that he is known for. As of yesterday, Sheen had his kids taken away and according to an article posted early this morning from the CBS Morning Show, he won’t be getting them back anytime soon. We can’t help his actions, but are we supporting him by following him on Twitter? Would you put yourself in the spotlight on purpose like creating a Twitter during the most hectic time of your life? I don’t think I would, but I’m not Charlie Sheen. On the PR side of things, if I were a part of Sheen’s management team I would do everything in my power to keep things quiet. Do you think Charlie Sheen having a Twitter right now is helping or hurting him and his reputation? In the mean time, #tigerblood  and #teamsheen will continue to dominate the Twitter world.

    I think it’s kind of ridiculous, but also humorous, that Charlie Sheen is now holding a record for the fastest time to reach 1 million Twitter followers. I think that later on he may regret creating his account during this chaotic time in his life; however, he is receiving a ton of publicity. I constantly see re-tweets from my own friends that include hash tags that refer to Sheen such as #winning and #tigerblood.

    Well for me I feel that making a Twitter account was not the smartest thing this movie star could have done in a time like this. With all of the news surrounding his life I feel that it is a little crazy to put more attentions on the subject. I can say that I am so sick of seeing his face everytime I turn on the T.V. their are so many more things that are going on in the world today that many people should be worried with. I do wish the best for Sheen and his family and I hope that America comes to realize that their is more to this world than just “movie stars” trying to get attention.

    I feel like social media in Charlie Sheen’s case is not a great idea. Look at how far of a downward spiral he has gone into in 2011. Adding petty one liners and more things to make fun of him about is not going to help his reputation. I don’t follow celebrities lives, but Charlie Sheen is someone that I hear about constantly and I feel sorry for him. What went wrong with him? I really hope that he gets his life together so that he can be a good parent to those kids.

    I am aspiring book auther, nevertheless I get terrible writers obstruct. Or even worse, I get this concept, begin writing about it, after which halfway through I draw a blank, leave the story and in no way work on it once again. Any tips for composing a good story without the writers obstruct?
