Sweden tweeter stirs critics with comments on Jews
Woman stirs controversy after using Sweden's Twitter account to make comments about Jews
By The Associated Press

STOCKHOLM (AP) ' A woman given the chance to briefly take over Sweden's official Twitter account has stirred controversy after posting comments about Jews.

Sonja Abrahamsson, who describes herself as a "low educated" single mother of two from Goteborg, provocatively asked what makes a Jew, used crude language and joked about Jewish circumcision.

The reactions were immediate. One tweeter wrote that "in one day (a)sweden went from global Twitter superstar to PR embarrassment."

Abrahamsson apologized if she had offended anyone.

The Swedish tweeting project allows different citizens from various walks of life to curate the account each week. As of Tuesday, the (a)sweden account had 34,500 followers and almost 20,000 tweets.
