#Tigerblood #Winning #PublicNervousBreakdown

Whether you think the whole Charlie Sheen thing is a delightful bit of comedic gawking or whether you think it’s a depressing spectacle as the world laughs at someone’s mental problems, you should probably know that Charlie Sheen is on Twitter. Yep. It’s a verified account and everything. So it’s him. It launched yesterday and as I started typing this item, he had 773,027 followers. There are a few tweets: “My sons’ are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option..!”, “Questions..? I’m here for my people..! Bring it!! #Tigerblood”
Now as I finish typing this item (and I’m a fast typist and fast writer), he has 776,028 followers.
