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.

Make no mistake, Charlie is winning. He might die if he doesn't scale back, but from a celeb status he is now EPIC. Something else tells me that people who frequent TMZ probably aren't moral authorities on anything...

Carlos is NOT BEING HONEST.

Charlie is IN DENIAL, and almost every word he says is a deluded LIE.

Hef has a the notorous Playboy mansion and raised kids, he's a hero..right?!

Charlie should open his mansion and turn it into a house of "LOVE" for all or sale memberships...50K?! i dunno big $bills$ or a little less and put the best chicks in porn there and perhaps a reality magazine.

note: I don't watch porn nor look at naked magazines!! Truth B told easy chicks don't turn me on as most women are easy...muah
I perfer chicks who play hard to get and then you marry them and they give you nothing in return. Chicks that stay dressed or very intoxicating to me...

But I must say I enjoy Charlie 'cause he sees, he gets it that their is no difference in all these chicks most of them are all hoes anyways. areJust they play games and act like their miss saintly thang. NOT. especially socialites you can have them Sunny side up And Sunny side down all Around the world.hmmm I park my car come out of store *****cat's galore and they don't give a rats arse what i look like...lolZ

and wanna follow me home like a lost pet. :)

Actually give me a small town girl as sweet as a fuzzy peach...

@ Angie ("He is the highest paid tv actor of all times.") Not anymore he isn't. He WAS the highest paid tv actor of all times, he's now unemployed.

Yes, people really liked him on the show BEFORE he went off the deep end and started talking like this, these are HIS quotes...that came out of his own mouth during interviews:

"I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path because it was written for normal people, people who aren't special, people who don't have tiger blood and Adonis DNA."

"They're trying to destroy my family, so I take great umbrage with that. And defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock."

"I'm tired of pretending I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending I'm not a total bitchin' rock star from Mars. People can't figure me out. They can't process me. I don't expect them to. You can't process me with a normal brain."

"I'm sorry, man, but I've got magic. I've got poetry in my fingertips. Most of the time -- and this includes naps -- I'm an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground."

"I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available because if you try it once you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body. It's too much."

"I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists."

"Great. I was already planning on staying 100 parsecs away from her." (A parsec is a unit of length equalling 3.26 light-years.)

"Let me say this about the Goddesses, I don't think the term is good enough, but when you're bound by these terrestrial descriptions, you must use the best term available. So if you think about it, dude, I'm 0-for-3 in marriage, but like in baseball, the scoreboard doesn't lie. Never has. So what we all have is a marriage of the hearts. And to sully, contaminate, or radically disrespect this unit with a shameful contract is something I'll leave to the amateurs and bible grippers."

"I blinked and I cured my brain. Can't is the cancer of happen."

Yeeeeaaaahhhhh...these are things Charlie WASN'T saying before, you know...when he had fans. He can't go around blathering disrespectfully and expect people are just going to laugh it off and his fan-base and "rock star" status will stay the same. You may stick by him, that's cool...your choice, but the majority of people are seriously turned off by this guy now and he's making himself unemployable as well.

Teresa,

Tell the slime-ball owner of this site to stop the excessive press coverage. Harvey will just laugh at you. He could care less that he is in part responsible for Charlie's actions.

The almighty dollar is Harveys drug. Human Beings are disposable.....

Response to the comment from 76. Charlie Sheen is a big boy and needs to be responsible for his behavior!!! TMZ is not enabling him...IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT EXCUSE HIS BEHAVIOR AND BLAME OTHERS LIKE TMZ FOR HIS ACTIONS!!!!!!!!! If you do not like TMZ.. then why are you on the website??????????????

It was all an act on the 20/20 show...just an act...now he can make his milk money by tweeting. Kind of sad to see so much talent wasted on Twitter, but hey he smoked the pipe, now it's time to pay the piper. Adios Charlie. Thanks for the laughs. You're history to me. And next time, maybe you shouldn't fill your planned out interview with so many contradictions. It was more a comedy bit than anything else. That is the last time I will watch CS period. He not only lies to himself but to the people who have supported him time and time again, feeling like he would eventually get it. Nothing is much sadder than a washed up Hollywood celebrity.
