Charlie Sheen Sets Guinness World Record for Hitting 1 Million Twitter Followers
The ghoulishness of the media obsession with Charlie Sheen has been well-documented, and we apologize for not covering every crazy thing he says about tiger blood with more diligence, but a Guinness Record in social media is a Guinness Record in social media, and so congrats, @charliesheen, for winning Twitter.
Guinness has verified that Sheen’s is the fastest account ever to reach one million followers, though the Guinness Book of World Records did not previously contain a record for that category. Sheen joined Twitter on the afternoon of March 1st, was almost immediately verified thanks to the intervention of celebrity endorsement broker Ad.ly, and within 25 hours and 17 minutes, he hit one million followers. As of posting, Sheen has 1,256,636 followers and is insane.
