Sheep farmer tweets for Sweden in twitter experiment

An organic sheep farmer, a priest and a Bosnian immigrant are amongst those who have helped double Sweden's Twitter followers in the past month.

As part of what the country is calling "the world's most democratic Twitter experiment", a different Swede takes sole control of the nation's official Twitter account each week, sharing their daily experiences and opinions and recommending things to do and see where they live.

21-year-old Adam Arnesson has been the biggest star of the project so far, tweeting photos and videos of the fluffy and sometimes grumpy lambs he tends to on his family's farm in a village just outside Örebro, 160 kilometres from Stockholm.
