Charlie Sheen Is Going to Make Millions Off His Twitter

The Twitter phenom is now signed up with Ad.ly, a company that facilitates endorsed tweets at a range of $200 to $25,000 per message. Ad.ly CEO Arnie Gullov-Singh predicts Sheen will eclipse Kim Kardashian, their highest-grossing client, because “He had the No. 1-rated show for seven years. You’d expect brands would be lining up to be involved with him in social media." Look, we're happy for Sheen and everything — but what happened to the days when a celebrity could go on Twitter rants without us having to worry about how much of their ramblings were being orchestrated by the secret hand of corporate America? It's just not the same anymore. [HR]
