The Media Guy
IPad 2: More Memory, Two Cameras, Adonis DNA, Tiger Blood
Dumenco's Trendrr Chart of the Week
- Sheen's daily tweet totals were under 30,000 a day until Feb. 25, but his recent media blitz drove him up to 228,606 total mentions (by name or via related memes -- especially "#tigerblood") on Monday and 464,383 on Tuesday. In other words, Charlie Sheen triumphed over the iPad 2 on Twitter yesterday.
- As of late Wednesday morning, Charlie Sheen has 830,687 followers on Twitter. Given that he only launched his Twitter-verified account, @charliesheen, yesterday, at his current growth rate he seems sure to hit a million followers by the end of the day.
