The entertainer reaches the million-point mark and becomes the most “tweeted” star.
Wired PR News – Actor Ashton Kutcher broke a highly sought after record Friday, leaving CNN in the dust. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Kutcher became the first person to gain 1,000,000 followers on the increasingly popular social networking site Twitter.
Kutcher, of “That 70s Show” and “Punk’d” fame, reached the milestone on Friday. He is quoted in the AP report as stating of the win against Twitter rival CNN, “We have shown the world that the new wave is here… It is present and it is ready to explode. You guys are all of it because I can’t follow me… We can and will create our media… Victory is ours!”
Despite the achievement, Kutcher may soon have some stiff competition from Twitter newcomer Oprah Winfrey, who “tweeted” for the first time during a taping of her show, which aired Friday.
