Several readers asked me this week. I wrote this article, with easy instructions, because my 2009 answer and 2012 answer are both wrong. The Web keeps changing. I added a message to my previous instructions to read this article.
Bear Grylls still has an Ask Bear page. However, you can only read old questions.

An Example from a Question I Received
A reader asked if Bear Grylls would be visiting India. If Bear Grylls was here, I would ask:
Do you have any plans to visit India?
Twitter is like email. Instead of an email address, I must add Bear Grylls’s name to the question. Like this:
@BearGrylls Do you have any plans to visit India?
