Sweden, It’s As Though We Never Knew You

on Wednesday, Jun. 13th

It seemed to be going so well, that exercise in democratic Tweeting that Sweden so optimistically dived into this month.

In case you missed it, the idea was to allow a different Swede citizen to helm the country’s official Twitter account each week, in a government effort to showcase the diversity of Sweden’s citizenry.

You have to imagine that any bureaucrat worth their salt who would approve of such a risky experiment would have a contingency plan for when that experiment inevitably went off the rails.

Like it did this week.

Here’s one solution — hand the reins over to Stephen Colbert.
