Charlie Sheen reaches 3 million Twitter followers

The world just can't seem to get enough of Charlie Sheen.

After setting a Guinness World Record for recruiting 1 million Twitter followers in a mere 25 hours and 17 minutes earlier this month, the actor has reached a new milestone by hitting the 3 million mark.

"Thanks @Boi_Wanda (follow!) for being my 3,000,000th Cadre!" Sheen tweeted on Sunday. "Two free tix to the show!"

So just what should Twitter user Boi_Wanda and Sheen's legion of fans expect from the troubled ex-"Two and a Half Men" star's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option Show"?

"The show he is working on right now will be largely spoken word, but having heard some of the monologues he is working on right now, it goes from hysterically funny to dark to very thought provoking," tour co-producer Joey Scoleri tells E! Online. "He is a truth seeker, that's his thing. Right now he wants people to hear the truth and see the truth, and I think that's why he has been as open as he has been about his life."

Besides a monologue that Scoleri describes as "shocking and provoking," the 70-minute show will include video presentations. "There is so much content out there about Charlie Sheen that has been user-generated, fan-generated, media-generated," says Scoleri, who promises there will be audience participation. "Some audience members will get to ask questions; it's going to be pretty fun and it will be formatted to a degree, but a lot of room for improvising."

As with his everyday life, expect Sheen's rants to vary each time he takes the microphone. "No show will be exactly the same — you can't with a guy like him," says Scoleri. "He will have a guide that he puts together, but it's not going to be exactly the same because the audience in every city is going to be different, the energy is going to be different, and he's going to feed off that."

    There's a rumor going around that CBS offered him his job back. I truly hope that's all it is.

    Exactly what is his show going to be about? Are people going to pay money to sit there and hear him bash his former bosses? I don't get it.

    I am really disappointed in Mr. Sheen. He had a wonderful show and now look what he has done to his co-workers.
    I think his brain is fried from all the drugs. Real good example for young kids
