Say What Now of the Day: It was only a matter of time before Sweden’s democratic experiment of a Twitter account, @Sweden, imploded into a PR nightmare — a different citizen takes over the handle every week, with very little oversight (or apparently, vetting) from the Swedish government.
This week’s empowered Swede is Sonja, a single mom who took advantage of her kids’ nap time today to ask @Sweden’s followers:
“Whats the fuzz with jews. You can’t even see if a person is a jew, unless you see their penises, and even if you do, you can’t be sure!?”
Naturally, her ignorance of history, social graces, and the fact that she currently represents an entire country has garnered all kinds of criticism — and unfortunately, prompted further follow-up tweets from the clueless 27-year-old.
So far, no comment, nor effort to delete Sonja’s tweets, by the Swedish government.
In which Swedish has a social media problem.
