Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a curious Twitter presence. At current count, he's yet to post 100 tweets, but has still accrued more than 645,000 followers, many of whom will retweet just about anything and everything he says:

Hi @Twitter. For tomorrow Zlatan needs more than 140 characters. Please change rules for Zlatan #DareToZlatan

On Monday, Ibrahimovic used his Twitter soapbox to start dispensing life advice (with a little help from Nike, from the looks of it, and his #DareToZlatan hashtag).

There were some suitably third-person tips and tricks:

Dear @EdgleyLFC. Daring to Zlatan is easy. Start by trying moves that can’t be done. Keep trying until you are Zlatan. #DareToZlatan

Am I mad @bailofwz? Would a sane man try a 32 yard overhead kick in an international match? #DareToZlatan

Incorporate Zlatan’s teachings into your life, @life_of_eisen, and one day @NikeFootball might make a t-shirt named after you. #DareToZlatan

Zlatan applauds the number of times you got Zlatan into one sentence, @jflint91. Always do what others don't have guts to try. #DareToZlatan

There are 2 things Zlatan cannot do @at_sunshine. One is be predictable. The other is a step-under. But Zlatan is practising. #DareToZlatan

 When the step-under is complete, so too will our lives be. Thanks for dropping by, Ibra
