Ashton Kutcher has challenged CNN to see who can be the first to reach 1 million Twitter followers. The news network currently sits at 937,000+ followers with DoucheNozzle McGillicudy slowly gaining at 888,000+. The AP reports:
The 31-year-old actor recently threw down the gauntlet, challenging CNN and its founder, Ted Turner. In a Web video posted earlier this week, Kutcher said he would ding-dong-ditch Turner’s house if he beat CNN to 1 million. (For those unfamiliar with the classic adolescent prank, ding-dong-ditch is when you ring someone’s doorbell and run away.)
“I find it astonishing that one person can actually have as big of a voice online as what an entire media company can on Twitter,” Kutcher said in a video he posted on qik.com. “I just thought that was kind of an amazing comment on the state of our media.”
Before everybody starts freaking out at the shockingly evident decay of society as a whole, I should point out that Ashton is still in 3rd place for reaching 1 million Twittees. BEHIND BRITNEY SPEARS. Okay, now start freaking out. Who’s up for some looting?
