Victories go to actor Ashton Kutcher

The actor challenged and beat media giant CNN at crossing the million follower mark early this morning.

Kutcher challenged the giant to a Twitter race, declaring he would donate 10,000 mosquito bed nets to charity for World Malaria Day in late April if he beat CNN, and 1,000 if he lost. Surprisingly, CNN agreed to do the same.

About 2:13 a.m. ET (11:13 p.m. Thursday PT) Kutcher's Twitter account crossed the 1 million mark, beating CNN, which had 998,239 followers at the time. CNN passed the mark 30 minutes later at 2:42 a.m. ET.

GV Says: This could change the face of news as we know it peeps. Stay tuned.
