Charlie Sheen's Decision To Join Twitter Was Economically Motivated

As you may have heard, earlier this week Charles Sheen (née Carlos Irwin Estevez) joined Twitter, gaining approximately five trillion followers in under an hour. So far the pearls of wisdom proffered from Sheen's firebreathing fists/fingers have included: "Face it folks, you just feel better when you say it. #WINNING," "I'm here for my people..!" and, in response to one from P. Diddy (“can u please send me the address to ur house? Ive been dreamin about a party like this all my life! See u soon! Lol”), "Get dressed my man... sending the driver..!" Most people probably assumed Chuck signed up to add another dimension to his latest bit of performance art but that's actually not the case. Sheen, who also this week demanded a 50% pay raise to return to the show he's been fired from, did it from the cash money.

Charles told TMZ today that his "primary motivation" in joining Twitter was so he can "score a fortune" through advertising. "It's a cash cow," Sheen said. Despite being a savvy businessman whose negotiating skills any investment bank would kill to have in its arsenal, we're hearing it was his financial adviser and friend, the legendary Lenny Dykstra, who made this recommendation.
