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.

He's such a winner... He should listen to what Bree Olson said about him before she became his "Goddess" before he gives her anything else for free. If she has so many problems with how he lives his life, why is she there?

And there are over a million idiots who followed him and put more money in his pocket.

Who really cares anymore. Even if Charlie gets another job he won't last long. Even now he is out there so much people are getting sick of him. When all of this settles down he will be back to his old ways and either will end up in jail or dead. I can't continue to read about him or watch him. I just feel embarrassed for him each time.

I don't get what this world is coming to. There are people who can't afford to put food on their table or gas in their car to get to work and these "celebrities" are getting paid $10,000 to tweet!!!! it's pretty disgusting. Who is paying them and why can't they direct the money to a better cause. Everyone should cancel the account to these people and rebel!

Um, yeah. ALL YOU LOSERS FOLLOWING HIM ARE JUST A PAYCHECK! How about you all leave him as fast as you joined him? That'd send a message. Oh wait, you won't, because you're a troll just like he says you are!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

iam a troll. i work for nobody. so it is what it is. right now i'm kinda upset about charlies mouth. i'll work for his ex's right now. he better pull up his bootstraps cause i aint workin for nobody. i'm a free agent and nobody cares anyways right? pretty soon i gotta leave charlies 'world' and go back to blogging on my own countries issues. canada's a right wing tinderbox and mr. sheens shine aint as bright as the millions of canadian voters who call the minority currently in power crap. so voice your views. its a free country but charlies fanbase depends on his behaviors. i don't support negative behavior. if he can't keep it together with all of his resources i'll see him in the enquirer and maybe oneday i'll give him a job. i know 60 year olds that look younger than him. he needs to get his act together now. brooke if your reading this. please forgive him. he doesn't need the additional emotional burdons. be supportive please i'm worried he might commit suicide. who's put mr sheen on suicide watch? tmz better start reporting.

#61 - It'd be great if people woke up and realized these celebs are ripping you off by following them on twitter or buying their brand of clothing or perfume. It just goes into their billion dollar pot and they don't care about you except that you keep supporting them so they can maintain their extravagant lifestyle. Do you really want to be paying for Kimmy to be pampered in some salon for hours while you work your butt off for every penny you earn? Or support Sheen's weirdness? Wake up. These people are not worth worshiping. The guy who serves meals to the homeless at the local shelter, however, is.

Thank you, I could not have said it better!!! Including sport players and coaches.

Charlie Sheen Doesn't Hit Women (Oh, Really?)
by Jeanne Sager
on March 1, 2011 at 2:45 PM

Have you heard the news? Charlie Sheen is now the hero to the All-American male. Able to take more drugs than nature allows and still survive. He's able to rant on network TV and avoid the psych ward. Able to convince a bevy of "goddesses" to move in with him after he successfully did the above plus lost his job on Two and a Half Men (where, let's face it, he didn't do any work to begin with -- he just played a lazy drunk).

Who knew being a wife-beating criminal was such a great thing, America? Yup. While certain American males are sitting, as you read this, furiously typing "how the f--k do I get Charlie Sheen's life?" they're conveniently ignoring a whole long history of Charlie Sheen's brushes with the law. Piers Morgan hasn't. In a bit released from tonight's highly anticipated interview, Sheen claims:

Women are not to be hit. They are to be hugged and caressed.

Oh, really? Remember the time he allegedly slammed a girlfriend's head into the ground, knocking her unconscious? How about that time he choked his own wife? America, let's wake up. You are currently fascinated with a man who is a criminal, and a dangerous one at that.

Sheen's goddesses, Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, plus soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller and two of his children, are now said to be living with a man who was once arrested on felony assault charges for threatening Mueller with a knife and trying to choke her (he was later convicted). These women and children are living with a guy who allegedly once slammed girlfriend Brittany Ashland into a marble floor, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the assault. A guy who didn't care that ex-wife Denise Richards was holding daughter Lola in her arms when she says he pushed her to the ground, making death threats. And let's not forget way back in 1990, Sheen "accidentally shot" then-fiancee Kelly Preston in the arm. He wasn't charged, but Preston immediately broke off the engagement (moving on to marry John Travolta).

Still sound like a guy we should be laughing about and celebrating for living the high life? Really? Because that's just brushing over the domestic violence charges. We also have Sheen's alleged trashing of a room at the Plaza Hotel last fall, when -- surprise, surprise -- his "escort" was said to be locked in a closet, terrified.

We could go on. Talk about the rehab stints. His link to Heidi Fleiss. But we shouldn't need to.

Charlie Sheen may think he's a tiger with Adonis DNA. I think he's a s***bag. America, when are you going to follow suit?

So what? I love Charlie and from the ratings of 2 and a half men, so do you guys. He is the highest paid tv actor of all times. Someone likes him. The man is not stupid. He is an intelligent, honest guy. He plays a boozed riddled sex addict who falls ass backwards into money! He is playing himself. If you love the show enuff to make it #1, then why hate the man for being true to who he is? U Fickle, fickle people. Hollywood is the great whore! Fall Babylon!!

#74...have you been hiding under a rock? Me and Charlie are friends in my head. We grew up together. Any woman allowing Charlie and his ding-ding within a 100 mile radius has been doing more drugs than he has. Really...this has been his past time forever. I don't think his behavior is right whatsoever, BUT, it's a behavior that hasn't been washed up or hidden. It is what it is. Why women flock to his known lifestyle is a question you should ask THEM!
