Actor Charlie Sheen now holds the Guinness World Record for being the fastest account to acquire one million followers on Twitter. Sheen reached that milestone in just 25 hours and 17 minutes, to accompany his other Guinness record for being the “Highest Paid TV Actor Per Episode — Current,” receiving $1.25 million per show.

Ad.ly CEO Arnie Gullov-Singh had this to say about the phenomena:

We were finished setting it up by 12 noon yesterday, and at 1 p.m., he posted his first tweet, and now he’s got 900,000-plus followers — it’s amazing. Charlie clearly got it, how it worked, what to do. He started doing with some hashtags, like the #tigerblood one, and #winning. Look, he had the No. 1 TV show for a while, he knows how to talk to his fans.
