Today the Globe and Mail published a retrospective of the year according to Charlie Sheen. Europe correspondent Elizabeth Renzetti takes a look at the hashtags that defined the actor and his comeback-cum-trainwreck via the world of Twitter.

Much ink has been spilt on Sheen’s 15 minutes of fame and what it means for the 21st century celebrity, social media, and the state of pop culture in North America. As #tigerblood shot up to become the second most popular hashtag of the year, it became hard to ignore the former star of Two and a Half Men. But just as quickly as it started, Sheen's antics became cringe-worthy - if you weren't appalled from the outset - and his star fizzled.

If you’re not too busy decking the halls or recovering from exams, take a look at what Renzetti has to say about one of the defining personalities of 2011 (whether we like it or not).
