Charlie Sheen, who made the Twitter hashtag "#winning" as popular as his account — he garnered 2 million followers after being on Twitter for less than a week — says he's signed off the microblogging site. Whether it's permanent remains to be seen.

The former star of "Two and a Half Men," Sheen first got on Twitter to vent his rage after being taken off the show in March 2011. In addition to "#winning," another popular hashtag became "#tigerblood," something he told NBC's Jeff Rossen he had, in terms of being invulnerable to addiction.

Sheen was so intense on Twitter, he even hired a "social media intern" to help him manage his posts. At the time @charliesheen went dark, Sheen had 7.7 million Twitter followers, according to Twitter Counter. (No. 1 is Lady Gaga.) 

TMZ said Sheen said in an interview he wanted to thank his followers for their support. "hank you all for your amazing support. Trust me when I say please ‘follow’ me to my next endeavor. It’s gonna be epic" he told the entertainment website.
