Charlie Sheen's Twitter Friends: Why They're All Winners

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 7th 2011 2:15PM
Charlie Sheen. What else is left to say?

Now that he's ranted and raved, flaunted his goddesses and talked up his Adonis DNA and tiger blood all over national radio and TV, he's taken to spewing all over the Internet with a live-streaming Web show and quotables on Twitter.

Since joining Twitter less than a week ago on March 1, he's amassed a Guinness World Record–breaking number of followers in a few short days; at our last check-in, he was up to 2,077,451. But what about the 30 special people he's chosen to follow?

Here's a list of his ridiculously random Twitter friends, and what we think makes them, well, winning.

Bob Maron (@BobMaron): Watch salesman -- for Warlocks and those of us without tiger blood coursing through our veins -- and proud owner of the title First Person Charlie Sheen Followed

Omid Ashtari (@omid): Twitter's own celebirty liaison, Omid likely had a hand in getting the press-happy sheen to tweet

Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano): Actress, philanthropist and super-Twitterer; no obvious ties to Sheen except that they've both been in the business a long time

Howard SternHoward Stern (@HowardStern): Sirius/XM radio host and self-proclaimed King of All Media, Howard had the pleasure of having Sheen call in to rant, er, talk on a few occasions last week

Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan): Host of CNN's 'Piers Morgan Tonight' and one of the first to get Sheen for an in-studio interview

Wynner Mitchell (@kweeneverything): Sheen's pal who claims to have convinced him to join the wonderful world of Twitter; according to her avatar, she knows she's awesome, too

Cat Schwartz (@Cat_Schwartz): A tech expert, pal of Wynner's and founder of HiTechMommy.com; maybe she's got a gadget to help Sheen get visitation rights with the kids ...

Rick Calamaro (@RickCalamaro): His bio says it all: he's the guy who chooses to be Charlie Sheen's assistant

Sean Sean "Diddy" Combs (@iamdiddy): Yep, that Diddy. He recently called Sheen his "big brother" in a tweet, and had a friendly back-and-forth the day Sheen joined Twitter, starting with this classy message from Diddy:
@charliesheen can u please send me the address to ur house? Ive been dreamin about a party like this all my life #winning! See u soon! Lol

Nick Swisher (@NickSwisher): Sheen loves baseball, so following this New York Yankees outfielder -- who's married to actress Joanna Garcia and runs in Hollywood circles -- was a no-brainer

Brian Wilson (@BrianWilson38): Another baseball guy, Giants pitcher Wilson has actually hung out on Sheen's yacht with him, though the two haven't tweeted to each other yet; maybe Wilson can help him prep for 'Major League 3'

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (@FloydMayweather): The famous boxer encouraged his followers to follow Sheen, compared their similar "winning" streaks and even talked up Sheen's 1994 flick 'The Chase' for it's driving-sex scene

Fred Durst (@freddurst): Limp Bizkit's Durst tweeted quite a bit about what a winner he thought Sheen was, prompting Sheen to follow him

Paul Scheer (@paulscheer): Actor and comedian Scheer described Sheen's arrival on Twitter "like Christmas has come early," then proceeded to bait the troubled star with tweets like "Oscars should be called Charlies," which Sheen quickly re-tweeted

Sarah SilvermanSarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman): The actress and comedian joked on Twitter that Sheen had "been diagnosed with Full Blown Busey" -- apparently Sheen's got a sense of humor about all of this

Minka Kelly (@minkakelly): She's a gorgeous actress, starring in the 'Charlie's Angels' TV reboot, but there's no real tie to Sheen. Maybe he just wants to feel closer to her baseballer boyfriend, Yankee Derek Jeter.

Nicky Hilton (@NickyHilton): Heiress, designer and Paris' sister, Nicky re-tweeted this frightening message to Sheen from fellow heir to a fortune Brandon Davis, with her fitting reaction "Yikes":
@nickyhilton: Yikes RT @BrandonDavis14: @CharlieSheen I live 2 doors away from u and am even more terrible than u r. Let's hang

Will Arnett (@arnettwill): As far as I know, these two have zero connection, but Sheen obviously likes the funny ones, and Arnett's company is called dumbdumb ... coincidence?

Brett Ratner (@BrettRatner): Ratner's directorial debut was Sheen's 'Money Talks,' which the star handpicked him for; Ratner recently tweeted "I owe him my career"

Sylvester StalloneSylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone): Considering Sly hasn't tweeted since before Sheen joined, we're calling him the wild card of this already random group of Twitter friends

Rob Patterson (@robpatterson666): The Filter frontman, who's currently engaged to Carmen Electra, has grown fond of the Sheen-centric hashtags #winning, #tigerblood and @sheenskorner; he also recently updated his Twitter profile to note that he is "Team Sheen," in case we couldn't tell

Jesse Waits (@JesseCWaits): He's a Las Vegas nightclub owner who's known for dating Playboy models ... kind of all Sheen (or any of us) needs to know

Jeff Rossen (@jeffrossen): This NBC news correspondent has snagged multiple interviews with Sheen since the drama began, and Sheen seems quite fond of him

Rebecca Fuentes (@rmf811): Charlie Sheen's 1,000,000th follower on Twitter, she tweeted that he should follow her back, and now he does

Brad Wyman (@bradwyman): The man behind WyTV, a LiveStream online TV channel, Wyman capitalized on Sheen's current unemployment at just the right time

Wy TV (@WyTVLive): The online broadcasting network responsible for Sheen's latest gig, Sheen's Korner

Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien): 'Conan' host, comedian and a proud Sheen Twitter followee, O'Brien tweeted:
"It's official: @charliesheen is following me on Twitter, so I win. Charlie, I'm sending over a van to collect the goddesses."

Paris HiltonParis Hilton (@ParisHilton): The heiress, probably jealous that Sheen followed her sister Nicky before her, tweeted to the star:
@CharlieSheen Hey Neighbor, I think I might have #Tigerblood ;) and I'm definitely #Winning! Huge! Can't wait to see #Sheen's-Korner

Rob Dyrdek (@robdyrdek): The pro skateboarder and star of MTV's 'Rob & Big' and 'Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory' has been loving Sheen's antics on Twitter ... now they're Twitter pals

Brian Pingleton (@BrianPingleton): This self-proclaimed VIP realtor from Oklahoma tweeted for Sheen to follow him, and lo and behold ...
@charliesheen Let me be the first person from Tulsa, OK that you follow! Wouldn't know if I didn't ask! Lovin' the tigerblood!

People Sheen has already unfollowed:
*One of his live-in goddesses, porn star Bree Olsen, was one of the very first people he followed ... until she moved out of the mansion. I guess sometimes the easiest part of a breakup is the "unfollow" button.

*Sheen had some 'Modern Family' kids on his follow list on Day 1, including Rico Rodriguez (Manny) and Sarah Hyland (Haley), but unfollowed them after Hyland responded by saying she was "really creeped out."

*Sheen also dropped Chris Ovitz, the guy tasked with hooking celebrities up with Twitter endorsement opportunities. What, is Sheen suddenly not good enough to endorse things?

So who do you think Charlie Sheen will follow next? And -- admit it -- do you/would you follow him on Twitter? Sound off in the comments.

It's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt Charlie..
I think another good pick would be Joey Lawrence to take your place.. Get help, you need it in more ways than one!
Seems to me all you got is money, not much for a human being. Seems nothing is important to you except for money and drugs.. Your children don't deserve seeing you the way you are, you lost your looks and respect for yourself.. Another thing, you did not make 2 and half men a hit all by yourself..Personally, I like Jon Cryer and the rest of the cast before you..We are all irreplacable, you are no exception!! Wake up to reality-it's all the drugs talking and ranting!!

Poor Charlie, He just needs a vacation without the goddesses and media. Just a quiet retreat with folks who do not want anything from him. A little good food, rest full sleep and simple things. I think he may appreciate getting off the hampster wheel for a bit and simply chill. A little old fashioned comfort food complete with apple pie never hurt either:)

Well I believe you have to have a wild time in your life, Charlie has had that, The show is done his kids were taken away, he has had lots of women, and partying. NOW IT IS CHARLIE Time . Get rid of the women, get some help, And just have time to take care of Charlie and get back on track., Get your life back normal so you can at least have your kids with you, Which should be the only thing that matters right now, NO DRUGS NO BOOZE. NO INSANITY.

JUST CHARLIE

it is irresponsibly for the people in charge to subject the cast and crew to this mad man! It is worse to profit on a very sick person! He is a liability. I doubt they can get insurance on him. He is to unstable and will only continue to wreak havoc.

Charlie breached his contract. He played chicken and lost! Winners don't blow up their world and the destroy the people around them.

It is very sad that the media gives this man the attention that fuels his delusional and worse there are people out there looking to profit from his illness...that means you Cuban. Please BOYCOTT Anyone that promotes and profits off this crazy nut!

It isn't like there are men and women dying in a war! How about 1/10th of the air time Charlie gets on our soldiers that are coming home in body bags or their families that are heartbroken and financial destoried. The millions that lost their jobs, The crisis are schools are facing. The millions of families that have lost their homes. Elderly having to choose life saving medication or food.

BOYCOTT all things Charlie and anyone that hires or promotes his spoiled ridiculous behavior. Stop rewarding bad behavior America! Watching someone self implode isn't entertainment it is sick and evil!

Charlie is my idol, except for the chain smoking and drinking in excess. Other than those two things he is my idea of a real man.

I follow @charliesheen I don't expect him to follow me though I am a fan of his what sucks though is that there are so many people in the world that do good things for charity and the media doesn't mention anything about them but as soon as one lives the rockstar lifestyle they are the first to make sure they make the person look bad
