10 Swedish Twitter Accounts You Should FollowJune 25, 2019
Twitter is one of our favorite social media channels for mindless scrolling and random factoid gathering. All you need to do is click on one hashtag, and before you know it, you’re in a weird and amazing corner of the internet.
For all your Swedish reading pleasure, we’ve pulled 10 Swedish Twitter accounts that are worth a follow, and maybe even a RT or two. And while we like these accounts, we’re obviously partial to @UmgasTheMag, so give us a follow.
Now that @Sweden has been archived, and the popular “Curators of Sweden” program has come to an end, this is the main account to follow for all-things Sweden.

If you appreciate muscles and snark, then it’s worth giving Zlatan a follow. Oh, and there’s soccer, too.

Stockholm went head to head with Milan in a bid for hosting the 2026 winter Olympics. This account was aspirational, and we were heartbroken to see Milan selected when the commission made its selection on June 24.

Part humor, part social advocacy, part political snark, this Skarsgård brother isn’t the most well-known, but he’s one of the most vocal.

OK, not an official Swedish account (you can follow the official channel at @IKEAUSA), but we love everything about a page with continuous IKEA hacks.
