Ashton is betting that he reaches 1 million twitter followers before CNN does. Ellen Degeneres announces on her show her overwhelming desire to BEAT everyone and get 1 million viewers. Who do you think will win? I think Ellen’s getting up there. She’s got 771 k so far.
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.”
