In the much-publicized duel, Kutcher’s Twitter account crossed the 1 million mark on Twitter about 2:13 a.m. ET Friday, narrowly beating CNN’s breaking-news feed, which had 998,239 followers at the time. CNN passed the mark at 2:42 a.m. ET.

But then what I realized is if we can transform that into something that’s positive that can actually effectively change the world, that can be a really valuable tool.”
Great. Now he’s pontificating.
Thanks God. Thanks a lot.
