Woo Hoo! Congratulations to Ashton Kutcher on becoming the first person on Twitter to have over one million followers. The epic battle — which was a direct competition with CNN’s twitter feed — concluded at around 2:13am, with CNN passing the million mark about 30 minutes later. As a result, Kutcher will donate $100,000 to the Malaria No More fund — resulting in about 10,000 mosquito bed nets for charity. CNN has also promised to make a donation to the charity.

To watch the live reaction of Kutcher, wife Demi Moore, and friends as they passed the one million mark last night, check out the video below:
