LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Charlie Sheen is “winning” – at least, on Twitter.
He crossed the social network milestone around 3:50 PM PST on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the embattled “Two and a Half Men” star posted his first Tweet.
“Winning..! “Choose your Vice…,” he wrote on Tuesday afternoon, posting a TwitPic of himself and one of his “goddesses,” Rachel.
For his second Tweet, Charlie – who has made the media rounds — told his followers about one media interview he was actually turning down.
“Just got invited to do the Nancy Grace show… I’d rather go on a long road trip with Chuck Lorre in a ‘75 Pacer….,” he wrote on Tuesday, referring to “Two and a Half Men” co-creator Chuck Lorre, with whom Charlie has had a very public war of words.
Other subsequent Tweets from the star included, “Winner…! 2012…#winner,” which accompanied a photo of Charlie holding up a cake with an Oscar statue featuring the actor’s head; and “Questions..? I’m here for my people..! Bring it!! #Tigerblood.”
He also sent Twitter messages to some of his fellow celebrity Tweeters, including Diddy, to whom Charlie wrote, “@iamdiddy Get dressed my man… sending the driver..!”
Among the stars Charlie was following on Twitter on Wednesday included Diddy, Alyssa Milano, Howard Stern, Piers Morgan, former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, Nicky Hilton, Sarah Silverman, Minka Kelly, George Lopez, Will Arnett, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., and baseball stars Brian Wilson and Nick Swisher.
He was also following his girlfriend Rachel, under her porn actress name of Bree Olson.
Some of the stars who were, in turn, following Charlie? Howard Stern, Piers Morgan, “Jersey Shore” star Pauly D, Rob Lowe, Will Arnett, Jason Biggs, Kelly Monaco, Lance Bass, Cheryl Burke, Eli Roth, Ben Stiller, Ivanka Trump, Howie Mandel and Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa.
Charlie also used the micro-blogging site to address the latest headline in the Sheen saga, which saw soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller sending authorities to the actor’s house to take the couple’s twin sons, Bob and Max.
“My sons are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option!” he wrote around 10 PM PST on Tuesday.
