And the Charlie Sheen saga continues, one drug fueled Twitter sh*t show at a time. Today it’s not Charlie’s outrageous tweets, but those of his gal pal Kacey Jordan (the porn star who tweeted a pic of her crotch from Charlie’s home and gave a detailed account of her evening with Charlie before he was hospitalized for a “hernia”). Jordan apparently locked herself in a Chicago hotel room and attempted to commit suicide, all the while tweeting about it.  Chicago police found her in her room surrounded by pill bottles and broken glass. Jordan later continued to tweet from the hospital during her recovery. A cry for help, for attention, for fame, whatever it was, the whole thing is ridiculous and sad.  This is what Twitter is for?
