Rio has taken to Twitter to answer questions from fans. What was he asked and how did he answer?
Of the many professional footballers who enjoy using Twitter to interact with their fans on a more personal basis Rio Ferdinand is perhaps the most famous. Sometimes the social networking site has gone a long way toward getting its footballer users into muddy waters when ‘Tweeting’ the wrong things at the wrong time.
The list of Premier League footballers who have been caught out this way is endless and has led many to believe its continued use is more of a nuisance then it is a benefit. Ferdinand however does use it well and he likes to interact with his fans; even those who perhaps don’t deserve a response with their immature comments.
On Monday night while embroiled in a train journey Rio took the opportunity to allay the monotony (of first class I am sure) of public transport by throwing an impromptu Q&A session online. He answered all the questions with his usual good humour and pinch of salt attitude and we thought we could give you a quick run through of the best on offer from his official Twitter page.
