Not content with all the media coverage he has been receiving for the last few days, Charlie Sheen is looking to get his word out directly to the world, thanks to his newly formed Twitter account.
His very first Tweet? “Winning..! Choose your vice.” We’re not quite sure what that means, but it linked to a picture of Sheen and a girl holding bottles of juice and chocolate milk. The Tweets only get weirder from there…
“The only watch that keeps Warlock time – Class of 1927 ring ‘Bambino U'”
“Oscars should be called Charlies”
Apparently the media interviews are still pouring through, but Sheen isn’t going to jump on every opportunity. “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….” he wrote in an early morning Tweet.
Even though the account, which has been verified by Twitterm hasn’t even been opened 24 hours, it already has more than 600,000 followers. Sheen himself is following 16 people, including CNN anchor Piers Morgan, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Alyssa Milano.
Sheen has been on a media binge ever since his hit show Two and a Half Men was suspended, putting his ~$2 million-per-episode salary on hold. In news interviews, he has seemed slightly off his rocker. In one, he’s even seen smoking right in front of the reporter as though it was a TV show from the 1950s.
There is clearly more to be seen out of the Charlie Sheen saga. He has seemed to tone it down a bit. In interviews this morning, he was calmer and spoke more sensibly. But there’s most definitely much more to come.
