Charlie Sheen to quit Twitter?

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is considering quitting Twitter, it has been claimed.

Sources close to the actor say he has had enough of the social networking site and doesn't see any benefits in sharing his thoughts in 140 character updates.

The former Two and a Half Men star joined Twitter on 1 March 2011 and attracted over one million followers in just 48 hours.

"Sources close to the former warlock say @charliesheen will close up shop within days, or possibly mere hours ... because Charlie feels like he's not getting anything out of the social network. No offense to his 7,707,791 followers, we're sure," TMZ reports.

If Charlie decides to leave the social networking phenomenon it will surely come as a huge disappointment to his followers, who he has kept entertained with pictures and sometimes controversial and outrageous status updates.

He also sparked globally trending catchphrases including the famous #winning and #tigerblood when he went through a troubled period last year following his sacking from Two and a Half Men.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
