Twitter during the 2012 election in Quebec

Several members of the team conducted a study about the use of Twitter by political parties in Quebec during the campaign for the 2012 election.
The results were presented during the symposium on the 2012 Quebec election organized by the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship (CSDC) on January 18th-19th, 2013. The presentation was based on the work by four members : Thierry Giasson, Mélanie Verville, Gildas Le Bars and Frédérick Bastien.

An article about this work was published on line in the French speaking newspaper Le Devoir.

This analysis is also presented in a book chapter:
