VIDEO & TWEETS: Punters respond to #AskTed hashtag exactly as you’d expect

Posted by

If you didn’t see it unfold live on RTÉ and Twitter yesterday evening – the #AskTed hashtag started by the station rapidly descended into farce.

You’d think RTÉ would have learned from the many examples of this type of Twitter Q&A being hijacked, but they pressed ahead – asking viewers to submit questions for racing legend Ted Walsh to answer during the Galway Races coverage.

Fair play to all involved, they pressed ahead with putting the questions that came in to Walsh – even though they bore no connection whatsoever to horse racing.

Walsh seemed baffled by the whole thing, but gamely answered what was asked.

We can only hope he and the producers keep it up for the week – here’s a flavour of the other questions he was asked.

Never change Twitter.
