Volatile US actor Charlie Sheen has blundered on Twitter after inadvertently tweeting out his phone number to his Twitter followers – all 5m of them.

The washed up star had been attempting to send a direct message to his improbable friend, Justin Bieber, whilst dining in Las Vegas’s top French restaurant, Guy Savoy.

Instead he accidentally sent the message, “310-954-7277 Call me bro. C”, as an open tweet.

It didn’t take long for Sheen’s followers to re-tweet the faux pas, forcing Sheen to delete the erroneous tweet and disconnect his number.

According to the Telegraph Sheen saw the funny side of his mistake, answering some of his flurry of calls with lines such as “Ray’s Pizza” and “winning”.
