Was Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter hack a publicity stunt?

Alleged fame-whore and Twitter celeb Ashton Kutcher is fighting for his space on the corner these days because there’s a new man in town: Charlie Sheen.

The train wreck that is Charlie Sheen has taken Twitter by storm, giving Ashton a run for his money as number one Twitter celeb. For this reason, it seems almost too timely that Ashton would find his Twitter account hacked, only to make headlines nationwide. Was it a coincidence or simply timely publicity stunt?

The “hacker” got into Ashton’s account to tweet, “Ashton, you’ve been Punk’d. This account is not secure. Dude, where’s my SSL?”

He added “P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL.”

Ohhhh snap!

Since Ashton’s “hack” the tweets have been deleted but we can’t help but think this could all be a pathetic attempt to gain some new publicity.

Sheen on the other hand is happy tweeting away about his tiger blood and constant “winning,” which in our opinion is straight winning… or should I say “bi-winning?”
