VIDEO: @Sweden tweeter Sonja Abrahamsson mystifies us with ‘breastfolding’

So this is breastfolding....

The woman at the helm of Sweden’s official Twitter account for the week continues to fascinate us with her mystifying tweets. Her latest obsession? The puzzling phenomenon of “breastfolding.”

Sonja Abrahamsson, the 27-year-old mother of two who was chosen by the country to tweet for a week as part of a social experiment, captured the attention of the world when she used her platform to tweet all of her questions about Jews, (specifically what makes Jews different and how one can identify a Jew). Social experiments!

Entranced by her broken English and stunning lack of self-awareness, we kept watch over her Twitter activity, desperate for more shockingly naive comments and random musings by a woman who claims she doesn’t spend much time thinking about the future but is “excited to know if we all die the 21st of December.”

And again today, Sonja struck gold — this time in the form of “breastfolding.” What is breastfolding? Great question, and one we shared after Sonja sent out a mysterious tweet describing a video she made that went viral because of her “great ability.” Then Sonja did us all a favor and tweeted a link to the much-anticipated breastfolding video.

What we witnessed was ….baffling.

After some strange shots of her fooling around with a banana, Sonja speaks in Swedish for a couple minutes before taking her breast in her hand, using her other hand to press the top of it, and lifting it up. We recognize two very distinct words in English: “Press” and “fold.” She ends the video by pulling — yes, pulling — on her breast.

Full disclosure: We don’t speak Swedish, so if there is any real point to this so-called party trick, maybe we missed it. But Sonja’s passion for her hobby is enough to hold our interest.

The breastfolding didn’t stop there — Sonja proceeded to tweet mesmerizing comments about everything from once hearing Justin Bieber scream “baby,” to sometimes wishing she had Down syndrome, to declaring “Happy Feet” the worst movie ever (on behalf of everyone in Sweden). 

Even more fascinating is that Sweden continues to stand by Sonja’s freedom of expression, and has no plans to bring her Twitter curatorship to an early end.

“Some of them have been talking about music, some of them have been talking about food,” Tommy Sollén, Social Media Manager at VisitSweden, told the Wall Street Journal about the guest curators. “Sonja is more focused on her own brand of humor and asking probing questions.”
