Even people who are “winning” all the time need an income. Reclusive unemployed actor Charlie Sheen has been hired to pitch products on Twitter.
Sheen has signed with Ad.ly, a Beverly Hills firm that writes messages from celebrities' Twitter or Facebook accounts to endorse products or brands. The celebrities are paid for each message.
On Thursday morning, Guinness World Records said on its Facebook page that Sheen was the fastest to ever hit 1 million followers on Twitter, which he did in 25 hours and 17 minutes.
The Los Angeles Times reports with Ad.ly, Sheen is joining a stable of more than 1,000 celebrities who include all three Kardashian sisters, Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol of the L.A. Lakers, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, former-boxer Mike Tyson, and musicians Linkin Park, Enrique Iglesias and 50 Cent.
