Charlie Sheen: I Twitter for Cash!

3/3/2011 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen told TMZ ... the reason he's taken up Twitter is simple -- it's a "cash cow."

Sheen told us ... his primary motivation behind the new ramblings is that he can score a fortune through advertising.  To give this some context, Kim Kardashian is reportedly pulling in $10,000 per tweet.

We pressed him more, and Charlie interrupted by saying, "Mike, I'm unemployed!"

In just 48 hours, Charlie has attracted 1.1 million followers.

Charlie has a letter written by Brooke in the Bahamas he gave to Radar. In the letter she BEGS him to forgive her for the drugs he found (Norco and crack cocaine) He has photos.

Brooke is no saint.

Just a guess, but maybe if he quits all the prostitutes and drugs, he'll probably have a ton of money. lol.

I don't have a Twitter account so I don't know how it works for people who want to make money from it BUT I was wondering why all of a sudden CS opened up a Twitter account amongst all the controversy going on in his life. Just seemed like a strange thing to do especially for an A-list star.

He claims all these people in the business have been reaching out to give him work yet he chooses to open up a Twitter account to make money? I don't think he has any offers coming in.

Also wondered why he was making numerous TV and radio interviews in the span of a couple of days. It's not like he's promoting a new movie coming out. I wonder how much he charged for the interviews?

Anyone now think this entire fiasco was created ONLY to re-brand himself to get the money rolling in since he lost his good paying job and not really about the "suits" telling him how to live his personal life?

No one would have known about his private lifestyle if it wasn't for the drugs, boozing and wild partying getting out of hand and making the news. He brought that on himself.

Wonder if he has crashed and burned and is in a corner rolled up in a ball, shaking and crying his eyes out.
