Dig or dej?

I've seen both Swedish spellings of 'mig/mej' and 'dig/dej' but duolingo is marking 'dej' as incorrect. Can you clarify please?

Mej and dej is closer to how they are said, but that spelling is very casual/sloppy. Mig and dig is the correct way to spell them.

I have been reading Kalle Ankas Pocket and they use mej/dej/sej and I kept wondering why. Thanks for the answer! :)

Mej/dej/sej are accepted, but mig/dig/sig are much more common and standard.

Yep. Like dom is becoming the spelling for de and dem.

Are mej and dej used more in writing or in books, while mig and dig are used in when speaking?
