Hilarious -- I heard about this recently on one of my favorite podcasts. I thought I might call and ask for Magnus. ;-)

Julie - use Mr Sälgö then they know. Isnt it cool that you trust people to represent Sweden....

But Warning You could get disappointed and just have to speak with the Swedish prime minister 

  • The Guardian
    • Apparently the top three things to ask a Swede if you want to annoy them are about Ikea, Abba and what they think about the Swedish Chef in The Muppets.
  • New York Times
    • Sweden is no stranger to relying on its people to tell its story. The country has a Twitter account, @Sweden, and it is staffed by a different resident each week, who is given full freedom to write Twitter posts about virtually whatever he or she likes on behalf of the nation of about 9.5 million people.
  • Twitter Sweden.se
    • From North Sweden - The winter way up north is currently at it's absolute best. Sunrise 4am, sunset 10pm. Soon the sun won't set at all!

 

So, have you taken your turn with the Twitter feed yet?

Re Julie 

not yet its on my list of things to do before I die....

  • Answer The Swedish Number TODO
  • Design an Infobox on Wikitree TODO
  • Be in charge of the Swedish Twitter TODO
  • Connect with the prime minister Stefan Löfven on Wikitree DONE relation
OK I have ancestors from Sweden (Benson) probably as common as Smith and Jones.  How do I find them?  OK plan a trip to Sweden!  Oh yea hear there are a lot of other benefits to a trip to Sweden, like sexig kille.

Its a little bit fascinating what a simple idea it is..... Don't understand why we don't set up things like this inside Wikitree....

Using Skype, Google Hangout its free communicating over internet....
