Ashton Kutcher beat CNN on Friday in a much-hyped race to see who could amass one million followers first on the popular micro-blogging website Twitter.

At 2:13am EST, the Hollywood actor won the duel against the media-giant. CNN trailed behind by 1,760 followers.

Victory is ours”, Kutcher tweeted, describing the moment as a “changing of the guard”.

He and his wife Demi Moore then proceeded to dance around the room to Kool & The Gang’s “Celebration.”

“We can and will create our media”, Kutcher said in his victory speech on ustream.tv. “We can and will broadcast our media. We can and will censor our own media ourselves. We are over a million”.
