There is one main reason Charlie joined Twitter according to TMZ.

The Two and a Half Men star calls the social networking platform a “cash cow.”

TMZ reports that Charlie explained to them that he can make a lot of money through advertising. Kim Kardashian, for example, is reportedly making $10,000 per Tweet according to TMZ.
