I’m @sweden This Week On Twitter

Skärmavbild 2016-04-25 kl. 10.37.09The Swedish Institute is, according to Wikipedia, a Government agency in Sweden with the responsibility to spread information about Sweden outside the country. One way the organisation does this is the Twitter account @sweden, which is handed over to a new Swede every week. This week it’s me.

  1. Anybody can nominate prospective people. I don’t know who does the selection. According to a friend of mine they often manage to choose maniacs. The list of dos and don’ts they’ve sent me reads like a history of things that have gone wrong with various tweeters. “Don’t get into fights.” “Don’t try to pick up people for sex.” 😀

    I’m about as surprised to learn this as Captain Renault was to discover that gambling was taking place at Rick’s Cafe. Admittedly, it’s hard to make a coherent argument in 140 ASCII characters. But the medium does attract a certain kind of person.

  4. Sweden looks Wolwerine-esque this week. As befits our status as the benign mutants (the malign ones being in the US Republican primaries).

  5. Please do not join some “reality” show! Or if you do, let it be “Neanderthal vs. Cro-Magnon”!

    Or maybe Ctulhu Manor -the last survivor (literally, survivor) gets the reward.

  6. I did play 7 games of Jeopardy 15 years ago

    I trust you did better than “Weird Al” Yankovic:

    I was there to match my intellect
    On national TV
    Against a plumber and an architect
    Both with a Ph.D.
    I was tense, I was nervous
    I guess it wasn’t my night
    Art Fleming gave the answers
    But I couldn’t get the questions right
