Don't Inhale The Fail Whale: Charlie Sheen Joins Twitter

Before you

Another big day for batshit crazypants Sheen as Charlie takes a 140-character leap into technology with the creation of a verified Twitter account. Does he know how to use Twitpic? We'll find out.

As Sheen has not yet tweeted his first broadcast (though already has more than 113,000 followers) we are left wondering if this is a professional move to help straighten out the mounting PR issues now that his long time publicist has split, or whether he'll use the platform to vent megalomaniacal and/or offensive rhetoric. Chances are we could be hearing something about Leslie Moonves' recent comments or the alleged conspiracy suit reportedly filed by his estranged uncle.

Considering how many of Sheen's cars have have already ended up over cliffs and in ravines, we urge the unsteady actor to obey all traffic laws and wait until the vehicle is in its upright and locked position before composing, so that the only train wreck that occurs, may be the content.
