Charlie Sheen has revealed a secret behind his Tweets. The 45-year-old actor has been breaking records since he joined the micro-blogging site, but he does seek advisement on his 140-character musings before he posts them on his feed.
“I write every word, then I send it off to Bob Maron, my Tweet master,” Charlie said in an interview with Australian radio network Nov, via The Hollywood Reporter. He also added that Maron, a business associated, is his “safety valve.”
“I get a little passionate at times,” explained Charlie, who now has 2.5 million Twitter followers since he joined on March 1. “I’ll be like, ‘I’ll show them!’ Send! And then I’m like, ‘Oh no…’ And it’s gone.”
Tweeting is also a source of income for the currently unemployed actor, who was officially fired from Two and a Half Men last week and just sued Men creator Chuck Lorre and Warner Brothers for $100 million.
The actor Tweets endorsements and according to THR, receives somewhere in six-figure range for an Internships.com message. He posted n internship listing on the website as he is looking for a hard-working intern with Tiger Blood to help him stay organized.
He also has a deal with Live Nation, which includes a tour (tickets are $35 for the “Torpedo of Truth” tour) and merchandise will be available.
“Admit it folks, the whole winning thing, you just feel better when you say it,” Charlie added of one of his most popular catchphrases. “It’s true, and you have to kind of smile when you say it.”
