Rio Ferdinand loves Twitter

Rio Ferdinand has defended his love for social networking thing Twitter and vowed to never stop using it EVER, even if people are really racist on it, including himself.

The FA questioned Ferdinand's use of Twitter after he responded to one guy's 'choc ice' tweet about Ashley Cole, and we've already covered how retarded that is.  Ferdinand told The Telegraph:
“You’ve got to be able to take abuse. If you can’t take abuse, then it’s not the place for you to be on there.
“You have Liverpool fans, Manchester City fans, obviously now Chelsea fans, who seem to follow me and come on there just to abuse me, but I’m not a----.
“I’ve said it before, but that kind of stuff is like fuel. You use that stuff, so when you play their team, there’s a little bit more rivalry about the game
“It’s fun and I treat it as fun. Some people take themselves too seriously on it and they’re the people who are going to get caned by every Tom, Dick and Harry.” 
And he actually comes across really well.  To the extent that I actually feel bad for the amount of times I've probably insulted him on here.  I'm not even sure if I have or not but it does sound like something I'd do. On a non-related note, don't use that line if the police turn up at your door.  Things get weird
