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 could make some cash tweeting about a particular liquor, cigar or brothel.
When celebs tweet to promote something I just ignore it just like I ignore TV ads.

Ahhh… the old act like a complete lunatic to attract more followers trick.

Evidently this new business model is circulating among the stars that have "fallen from grace."

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??????????????

"Why am I on TMZ....unlike yourself who follows the crowd, I choose to challenge it."

============

Why dont you challenge Charlies abusive, CrackStar behavior?

Everybody is using his carcass as a punchline, now seen as synonymous with FAIL.

Talk to Leno, Letterman, O'Reilly, et al... or your next door neighbor - go get the facts, and get off that crack pipe!

STOP THE MADNESS...don't you know if you IGNORE the crazy guy on the street he just goes away?.

Following CHUCKLES on twitter HAS TO BE the lowest form of daily activity on the planet....since CHUCKLES is the LOWEST life form on the planet today.

TMZ is making money doing what they always do...CHUCKLES is supposed to be an major "AC_TOOOR" and prides himself for being "above the little people" and his brain is so much more "Evolved"

Well folks...I think his turning to twitter and receiving "Love" from his fans from it shows the depths of his narcissism...it has no bottom.

There's a video on Radar that shows the drugs Brooke had in her room (Crack pipe and other stuff) along with her driver's license. The reason she left the Bahamas is because Charlie and the Godessess kicked her out because she broke the rule of no drugs.
This is what Charlie says anyway...

stay tuned for the next episode...

Charlie Sheen is such a loser & he needs some serious rehab, both for his severe drug/alcohol addiction and his mental issues. It is a crime that this man is allowed to pro-create.
