Los Angeles: His personal and professional life may be going haywire but actor Charlie Sheen finally hassome good news. He now holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest Twitter user to reach one million followers, after hitting the figure in just a day.

Sheen can earn between USD 200 and USD 25,000 for a single Tweet and could soon outrun Kim Kardashian, currently the most prolific star for earning money through social networking advertisements.

Sheen, 45, is currently embroiled in a custody battle over his 2-year-old twin sons with ex-wife Brooke Mueller, who has filed a restraining order against him.

The children were recently taken away by police from Sheen`s Los Angeles home, which he shares with his two girlfriends, porn star Bree Olson and nanny Natalie Kenly.

The actor`s other ex-wife, Bond girl Denise Richards too has decided that their daughters, six-year-old Sam and five-year-old Lola, remain away from their father.

Sheen`s hit sitcom `Two and a Half Men` was cancelled earlier after he publicly abused the show`s producers.
