Ashton Kutcher's race to 1,000,000 (a.k.a. one million) followers on Twitter is over. He cracked the one million mark at about 11:13 p.m. Pacific Time tonight (4/16/09).
Ashton has said all along that it says a lot about how the public consumes it's news, information, and has a desire to be a part of being the information stream.
According to the statistic I read today, Twitter is at about 8.5 million subscribers. That translates into roughly 11.7% of Twitter's subscribers following Ashton Kutcher (and nearly that many following the CNN Breaking News account).
I'm at 337 people today. They're all nice enough to care what nonsense I type on Twitter so to me that's worth a million!
