“Law & Order: Organized Crime” star Christopher Meloni isn’t afraid to go after what he wants. And his latest goal is one million Twitter followers.

Meloni gained huge popularity after playing Detective Elliott Stabler on “Law & Order: SVU” for 12 years. After taking a 10-year hiatus, Meloni returned to the role this past year with Stabler’s own spin-off series. “Organized Crime” quickly rose through the ranks and became one of 2021’s hottest TV shows.

The “Law & Order” show wasn’t the only thing to gain attention from fans this year. Meloni himself broke the interest earlier this spring with astounding pics of his behind, and he followed that up with a nude cover on “Men’s Health.” Suffice it to say, Meloni is thriving right now.

But it’s not quite enough for the “Law & Order” star. Apparently, that one million mark will make or break his success. Meloni updated fans with a post that broke down what he’s achieved already and how far he has to go.

“Attention: I have just reached 470K followers. Just another 530K to go until I know I’m a success. Tell a friend,” Meloni tweeted.

Meloni isn’t afraid to be direct about what he wants, apparently. Fans must’ve started telling their friends because since he’s posted that tweet, he’s gained at least 500 new followers. Guess being direct is a pretty good strategy.

Some fans joked with the “Law & Order” star in the comments. They compared their follower numbers to his, and some gave him content ideas that could draw in more followers. But one fan just went in for the kill, and Meloni respected their response enough to quote tweet it.

The Chris Meloni fan wrote, “You’re almost somebody in this biz.” Ouch.

But Meloni took it in stride and even turned it into a positive note. “Affirmation…. it helps,” he replied.

‘Law & Order’ Stars Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay Tease Fans With Phenomenal Pic

Earlier this week, Meloni once again sent his followers into a frenzy. This time, he recruited co-star Mariska Hargitay, who plays Detective Olivia Benson on “Law & Order: SVU,” to help.

Benson and Stabler have a lot of chemistry on screen. But nothing ever develops between them, not even a kiss. Instead, fans have had to use their imagination and picture a world where Stabler and Benson can be together.

So of course, fans freaked out when Meloni dropped this pic of the two co-stars on set. “#Rehearsing,” he captioned it. See the steamy snap for yourself below.

The whole “Law & Order” fandom absolutely freaked out when they saw the pic. Some fervently hoped it was real, while others tried to soak it in because they knew it (most) likely isn’t. Meloni posted the pic in response to a fan’s tweet, and when the fan said the pic would “end” us and the internet, she was absolutely correct.
