Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN race on Twitter is over

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!
