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.

I think Sheen should go back to the show, wear Hugh Hefner style bathrobes, and holding a crack pipe like some old man standing in his den.

Never setting it down.

Twitter pays you to tweet, but not as much as CS claims. 10k/week's a lie. maybe a couple hundred but thats it.

I say leave Charlie alone; he has issues and needs love and support from family and friends.I think he is a great actor and I love two and a half men. Hopefully he will be able to take charge of his life soon before it is to late. The blood sucking press should not make light of the situation. I think the people reporting on this are bottom feeders. A persons personal life should not be put out there for all to see.

It is truly sick that anyone would ever bet on an individuals possible death. This man has a family that loves him and children who need a father. Think about the pain that they would have to cope with if something does happen to him. Do they deserve what is happening? Everyone makes mistakes, and no one is perfect. Charlie can turn his life around. That is the good news. It's never too late. I'll pray for you Charlie. You can be a winner, don't let the demons deceive you.
