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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
