Sweden's Tweet to Democracy

Jan 23, 2012

Sweden is trying something new these days. Each week, the Swedish government’s twitter account, “At Sweden,” is being handed over to a Swedish citizen. And for seven days, that person can say anything they want to the account’s 25,000 plus followers. The government calls it “the world’s most democratic twitter account.” J. David Goodman blogs at “The Lede” on the New York Times website, and he’s on the line to tell us more about what seems like a bold experiment on online democracy.
