How to get a million followers in a day – just be Charlie Sheen

If you’ve been on twitter in the last 24 hours I’m betting at least one of your friends has retweeted or started following Charlie Sheen (!/charliesheen).

He’s on track to gain 1,000,000 followers in 24 hours, that has to be some kind of twitter record.

I’m hoping the popular cleaning product “Mr Sheen” is working every marketing angle right now to get some additional followers out of it too.


24 hours after posting that I can see he is now about to break the 1.5M mark (1,458,339 to be exact).

I really liked how quickly The Red Cross jumped on the #tigerblood hashtag with this tweet:!/RedCross/status/42947546695467008
