As reported yesterday actor Ashton Kutcher is racing CNN to be the first to have 1 million followers on Twitter. Right now the Kutcher's aplusk account has 998,162 followers and is growing pretty fast. The million is just minutes away. Update: Ashton Kutcher won the race. He will actually be on Oprah tomorrow to talk about Twitter, you know what that means - all of America is going to get a Twitter account, because Oprah says so.
CNNbrk is behind by over 1,000 followers standing currently at 996,691.
Actor Ashton Kutcher kicked off the race last week. There is a good cause in this race as both CNN and Ashton Kutcher pledge to donate 10,000 mosquito bed nets to charity for World Malaria Day in late April ($100,000 Donation). Additionally the lucky 1,000,000th follower will become a character in Sims 3 sponsored by EA.
