Sweden Turns Over Twitter Account (@sweden) to Citizens

@Sweden is being curated by “a new swede every week,” the site Curators of Sweden explains:

Every week, someone in Sweden is @Sweden: sole ruler of the world’s most democratic Twitter account.

For seven days, he or she recommends things to do and places to see, sharing diverse opinions, and ideas along the way.

After that, someone else does the same—but differently. Follow all nine million of us. Welcome to Sweden.

I love the idea of letting the people of Sweden be the country’s Twitter representative one by one, and I also love the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any censorship of the feed. Recent posts have included a guide to Swedish profanities, shoutouts to the local dancehall community and answers to questions about Stieg Larsson
