Roger Federer has been a very active member on Twitter since he arrived in Shanghai for the Shanghai Rolex Masters 2019, last week. Federer explicated that the reason for being too active on social media is because he likes to interact with his fans.
The Swiss maestro has been tweeting plenty of times since 2 October, when he tweeted or retweeted posts 25 times. Speaking about why he is being very active on Twitter in the last week, Roger Federer suggested that he is not on social media to post two times a day every day and that he does not tweet for money.
“I always said, and I swore to myself, I will never start on social media if I have to post every day two times. That’s just not the idea for me,” Roger Federer said.

The Basel native further added, “Even though people say that’s what you’ve got to do, but I don’t care what I have to do because I’m not on social media to make money or anything.”
The 20-time Grand Slam champion revealed that he too enjoys social media and likes to have fun with the fans and interact with them. However, Federer explained that he is active on social media only when his family and friends are not around.
He seeks to limit his screen time on social media, especially when he’s around his loved ones. Following his defeat at the Wimbledon championships 2019 finals, Federer went for a vacation with his family and did not tweet a single time for a 10-week stretch.
He concluded: “I’m just there to have fun with the fans and it’s fun to interact. I have been doing it when I’m on the massage table or hanging out in the morning and not doing anything besides just having good conversations with my team.”
