Rio Ferdinand Stirring Up The Mixing Bowl At Old Traffordby Mick Bates / 07 February 2014, 12:35Tweet
Some footballers seem to forget that Twitter is not a private conversation between friends and trusted colleagues instead it is a platform where your thousands (if not millions) of followers see every comment that you make. Others such as the likes of Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) relish in whipping up a storm.
The latest player to create a mini-controversy in the social media world is Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand who sent the this following tweet:
Managerial merry go round looks on the cards again....who next after Laudrup are we thinking??— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) February 5, 2014
Now Rio is not a novice when it comes to Twitter he has over five million followers and has sent over 13 thousand tweets and it would not take a rocket scientist to work out that his current boss David Moyes would be the answer on most of his followers minds.
As he has so many followers he was sure that he would be re-tweeted hundreds of times and also receive many replies and that this would be more than likely be picked up many news agencies.
