Most democratic governments claim to be representatives of their citizens, but few would be so bold as to let a random citizen speak out on behalf of the government. But in Sweden's new "Curators of Sweden" project, the country is offering different citizens a chance to control the country's Twitter account, @Sweden, for a whole week. There seems to be no real limit to what the guest account holder can say, as past Twitterers have already cursed up a storm, criticized some of the countries biggest tourist traps and led political discussions.

Should your country give this a try?
