Charlie Sheen quits Twitter, #winning jokes commence
Charlie Sheen quits Twitter! Is that a "winning" moment for the web, or the sad loss of one of the most unpredictable 140-character wordsmiths around?
Charlie Sheen quits Twitter? You'd better believe it! The winningest celebrity to ever confine their deep thoughts to the social platform has peaced out, leaving a veritable joke-off in his wake.
It all began in March of 2011, when the actor joined Twitter shortly after his blow-out with Two and a Half Men. As the unpredictable, bizarre and hilarious tweets flowed, fans followed. Before deleting his account Friday the 46-year-old had over 8 million fans!
Bidding the social networking site adieu, the American Idol judge hopeful wrote one last Ryan Seacrest-esque message: "reach for the stars everyone. dogspeed cadre. c out."
Enticing fans not to stray too far away, he later cryptically commented to TMZ, "Thank you all for your amazing support. Trust me when I say please ‘follow’ me to my next endeavor. It’s gonna be epic."
After news of Charlie Sheen quitting Twitter spread through the web, one fan commented, "A story says Charlie Sheen quits twitter. That's too bad. Now there's only 140 million incoherent kooks left on twitter."
An account parodying the humor stylings of actor Will Ferrell commented in rhyme, "Roses are unicorns violets are green welcome to the party I'm Charlie Sheen #Winning."
A third Twitter user added, "Charlie Sheen stopped twittering...now how am i supposed to know if he's #winning?"
One last jab? "If there was a list of things Charlie Sheen should quit, I'm sureTwitter would have been towards the very bottom." Ouch!
