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.
