Stephen Colbert is not relenting in his effort to tweet for the @Sweden.
See the June 18, 2012 Colbert Nation episode
The @Sweden account is the official Twitter account for Sweden (via the VisitSweden people) and its curator changes every week. It’s uncensored and for the weekly curator, pretty much anything goes.
The account got international attention last week when its curator tweeted what was long debated as potentially anti-Semitic. A fantastic blogger, The Digital McGyver gives a very interesting analysis of the “Sonja-what-the-fuzz” tweet and its rippling effect across the globe (it’s a great read.)
So far, despite the onslaught of incoming emails and trending hashtags, the future @Sweden blog/Colbert is still but a distant maybe.
In true Swedish fashion, nothing can deviate from the path, not even to capitalize on the free marketing the guest curator account was designed to manifest. Hello Visit Sweden! Go crazy. Try something new. Live a little.
And bring on Colbert!
