Ted Turner To Get “Ding Dong Ditched”: Ashton Beats CNN To 1 Million

kutcher_4-17.jpgWell Ashton Kutcher did it: he beat CNN to one million Twitter followers early this morning. WebNewser has the video of Kutcher’s live-stream and the full back story.

And CNN was gracious in defeat — or something.

American Morning had three segments on the story this morning, and Kutcher will be on Larry King Live tonight. You can even buy a CNN.com t-shirt to commemorate the occasion.

The victory means a major charity donation and a “ding dong ditch” for CNN founder Ted Turner, who Kutcher effusively praised during the live-stream.

WebNewser: Kutcher’s victory video on Ustream (featuring appearances by Diddy, Demi Moore and more).
