Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

@sweden Feb. 24, 2017, 8:45 p.m.

Within the political parties, 39% of Swedish Democrats (you remember them from my rant last night, right?) thinks he'll do well.

@sweden Feb. 24, 2017, 5:18 p.m.

71% of Swedish women thinks he'll do a very poor or poor job. 57% of Swedish men.

@sweden Feb. 24, 2017, 5:16 p.m.

Examples of words used by the 64% of Swedes who think's he'll do poorly: "Unpredictable, not serious, lack of experience, mad."
