Une pratique collective de fabrication de l’autorité

Abstract : In this paper, we present a case study on the live tweeting of a professional event, in order to investigate the collective dimension of authority. Through our work, including social network analysis, we observe that this use of Twitter aims not so much to generate authority but rather to reproduce existing authority structures. This reproduction of authority comes from a process of authority flow between actors, and does not rely much on the groups attending the event. This result emphasizes the hybrid dimension – cognitive, informational, calculated – of authority. We will firstly discuss it in relation to the type of communities – SEO experts – that were analysed and, then, according to the appropriation of Twitter that these professionals developed throughout their use of social networking websites.
