Charlie Sheen officially made it into the Guinness Book of World Records the other week, when he became the first celebrity to get 1 million followers in a little over 24 hours. However, there’s more to his account than meets the eye.
Now having surpassed the 2 million threshold, Sheen seems incredibly popular
on Twitter. As he should be, some say, since he’s really putting a lot of effort into it, keeping everybody up to date with everything going on in his hectic life.
Whereas some celebrities are known to have people doing the tweeting for them, what struck fans the most about Sheen was the fact that he appeared to be tweeting himself.
Not really, Radar Online
has learned. The paparazzi agency has been in Sheen’s house a couple of times already for interviews, so there’s really no need to doubt what one of its people is saying: Charlie has someone write the tweets
Still, the words that we read on the @CharlieSheen page
are actually his real words – just that he doesn’t bother to write them.
“Those were Sheen’s words, but it was not exactly him tweeting. Rather, it was @BobMaron, the star’s self proclaimed Tweet Master, who is typing in those words after speaking personally with Sheen,” Radar reports.
“I’ll let you know a secret. He doesn’t actually do the tweets himself. He has a ‘tweet-master’ as he calls it,” the Radar reporter explains.
“He calls this person on the traditional cell phone, or the house phone when I was there, and says the message that he wants out,” the reporter adds.
Yes, those are still Sheen’s words but something seems to be irretrievably lost by knowing that he’s not the one who sits at the computer, tweeting to his 2+ million followers.
This, in turn, begs the question: if the tweets are not 100% percent genuine, how much
of what we’ve seen lately is? Could Sheen be playing a trick on the media and his fans, all of whom have been watching him fascinated, imagining they saw the trainwreck of the year?
To both this questions and any other of the kind that may arise, only time will provide an answer. In the meantime, Sheen is doing his own webcast / talk show called “Sheen’s Korner”
and it should provide further insight into the controversy.
