Sunday, July 31, 2011

Manchester United ace Rio Ferdinand thinks he may have been the latest victim of phone hacking after his photos of inside the White House were removed from his Twitter account.

The 32-year-old was visiting the White House along with the rest of the Red Devils squad as part of their pre-season tour of the US.

Ferdinand told his army of over 1million Twitter followers how much he was enjoying the tour before taking a picture posing in a "private room".

The excited defender then posted the snap on his social networking page, adding the trap-line: "Security needs beefing up here at the White House....!!"

Just seconds later the picture mysteriously vanished.

When he realized what had happened, Ferdinand wrote: "Whoa....some1 has got into my phone + taken down my pics off twitter....this is deep...is jack Bauer in Washington?!"

Other tweets soon followed: "What an experience having the opportunity to go into the White House, thank you.....now where are my pics????"

And then: "My pic of the security was #removed quick, rapido, sharpish, fast....they don't play here in DC...I feel like I'm on 24 right now #baffled"

Oddly, other photographs of Ferdinand in the state dining room and one of his team-mates eating cookies were allowed to remain online.

But the issue was still on his mind the following day, as he wrote: "Training just done in DC....feels kinda weird...feel like I'm being watched by some undercover jack Bauer type dudes...phone hacked into etc."
