Gossip: Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher beat CNN in a race to be the first Twitter user to amass 1 million followers, and an anti-malaria charity is 10,000 mosquito-net beds richer as a result.
Ashton Kutcher last week narrowly beat CNN in a race to be the first Twitter user to amass 1 million followers. Kutcher, an actor and producer who sends short messages under the handle @aplusk, challenged @cnnbrk to the duel, promising to donate 10,000 mosquito-net beds to an anti-malaria charity if he won. CNN had reached 998,239 followers when Kutcher crossed the finish line. “We now live in an age in media when a single voice can have as much power and relevance as an entire media network,” said Kutcher.
