Alexander Hallberg

is @sweden 2017-09-25 to 2017-10-02

Originally from Lerum, a small town outside of Gothenburg, but currently living in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Here I serve as President of the Swedish gaming federation, Sverok, and the Swedish e-sports federation.

I am a passionate nerd and spend a lot of time playing different kinds of games, and I regard the nerd identity as a strong part of me. Outside of work I am deeply involved in politics and fighting for equality, solidarity and democracy, values that are very important to me. Fighting for a free but smarter internet, safe from hate and harassment. Lastly, I love to laugh and try to do it as often as I can. 

I will be writing a lot about swedish politics, nerd culture and different swedish things you see in my regular life. You can find me @wingate32, but I tweet almost exclusively in Swedish. :(

@freqflyer Is that chocolate on that sandwich?

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:54 p.m.

@Latin_Lover90 Thank you for the feedback. Not very constructive though.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:54 p.m.

@Avoqado_ @SofiaIverson I’m counting that strong men like you will die for us fighting in a country far away for our flags honor!

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:52 p.m.

@Fcukyuocnuu You can’t force yourself into an argument, change the subject and then cry about being ignored.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:51 p.m.

@Fcukyuocnuu The point is that she is following a well-known pattern of these parties. Her point is irrelevant because we are not debating.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:48 p.m.

Spread the word and tell your friends in Svalbard, Alaska, Hawaii, Tibet and Mozambique. I’m going to bed and want to wake up to lot of pics

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:46 p.m.

1. Svalbard 2. Hawaii 3. Alaska 4. Tibet 5. Mozambique Can we manage that my dear followers?

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:45 p.m.

Ok, let’s try something. How big is this accounts reach anyway? I would like to receive a picture of today’s lunch in the following places:

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:42 p.m.

@artistofideas Someone who thought it was a good idea to settle in place where it rains a lot and there is super cold in the winters.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:41 p.m.

@Fcukyuocnuu You left out the word parties. I’m talking about the parties and writing that she probably isn’t even a member.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:38 p.m.

@Dahlberry Should that be a free and equal exchange or just free?

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:37 p.m.

@SofiaIverson I’m not surprised when one of our biggest political parties call them the scum of the earth and worse. I would be angry too.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:34 p.m.

@SofiaIverson Ask BRÅ. My guess is different laws, different basis for numbers. I guess that are reported crimes only correct?

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:19 p.m.

Educate yourself and greet your enemy with a firm hand and a smile.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:18 p.m.

But for me, it’s important that the internet is a safe place for everyone. So I will spread their techniques so you can spot them easier.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:17 p.m.

As should the liberal, conservative and left movements do to tone down the debate so you can actually solve the real problems.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:16 p.m.

“An attack on one of use is an attack on all of us” The nationalistic, xenophobic and populist parties of Europe stick together.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:15 p.m.

By someone not even associated with the party. So strong is the international internet movement and feeling of marginalization.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:14 p.m.

Notice how it began with a scandal of corruption and sexual harassment. Now I’m being accused of not caring for victims of harassment.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:13 p.m.

Another classic technique: paint your opponent with allegations so they must defend themselves.

@batu_bey Use it to fuel your own fire instead. We takes turn, keep fighting the good fight, can’t let the bad guys (often guys) win

@Allison_Ivy79 Joel all the way. Henrik may be king in New York but in Gothenburg it is his brother who rules. And hi :)

Here is one example. Whataboutism is their weapon of choice. Google what it means and ignore it.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 9:38 p.m.

And they call themselves patriots? Wow. Mind boggling.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 9:38 p.m.

It’s interesting. I had a bunch of them tweet to me who are deliberately working to spread lies about Sweden or tarnish our reputation.

you can count that I will get a lot of flack from Pepe-wielding Twitterwarriors for my comment. They can’t handle even the smallest slight.

They are our national populist party with xenophobic rethoric. Same people as in all of the worlds Charlottesville’s

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 9:31 p.m.

Horrendous. Politics gone wrong. A party that works to suppress criticism internally and bash media for spreading lies. Sad!

@JonatanGlad Don’t be like that now. We can come to you instead and capitalize on the lack of good puns ;)

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 1:06 p.m.

@goteborgcom So please, bring me your best ones!

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 1:06 p.m.

As a representative of not only Sweden but @goteborgcom as well, it would be punconstitutional not to tell at least a couple a day.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 1:04 p.m.

So if you don’t like witty jokes it will be pun-ishing to follow me this week.

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 1:03 p.m.

In Gothenburg, we have a long standing tradition of telling jokes and puns. How sweede is that? :D #gbgftw

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 12:59 p.m.

@Ependyma_Louise At least twice per day. The first one is coming up really soon!

@DanyWho Yeah. It’s about tradition I guess. I think we have gained a lot of good things from getting rid of titles.

@brilliantblue_ Then you should see my board game collection

@muhmt Yeah, and they call them Sasha for short. Mikail or Mikael as we say in Sweden is very common as well

@ThatsMrHasler But the most tasty I guess would be Swedish meat balls and a pint of dark rauch bier. Dark, Smokey and juicy

@sweden Sept. 25, 2017, 11:35 a.m.

@ThatsMrHasler Hard one. The most Swedish one would definitely be “Sill och nubbe”, pickled herring and brandy.

@brukspatron I would never... that’s beneath me and my house. Honest mistake I swear.
