Du tritium dans les gros titres. Rumeurs anxiogènes et remise en cause des médias sur Twitter

Abstract : In our collective imagination, we tend to see social media as fertile grounds for the emergence and the spread of false information. This paper investigates, on these platforms, the process by which we condemn the contents that we consider false and therefore deviant. We built a corpus of tweets to study the making and the suppression of a rumor related to the contamination of tap-water with tritium, in July 2019 in France. Analysis shows that the discussions on Twitter actually led to an effective enforcement of the norms of truth. It however reveals multiple power struggles, especially regarding the legitimacy of the actors historically responsible for truth enforcement.
