#jesuisCharlie, ou le médium identité

Abstract : The article reviews the spread of the tweet and hashtag "jesuischarlie" following the attacks against Charlie Hebdo in January 2015 in Paris. It shows that the combination of the slogan, the visual and the keyword is not only a remarkable case of digital virality, but also a mediological turning point, which far exceeds the strict media issues. Sign of the advent of hypersphere, the spread of "jesuischarlie" is indeed characteristic of identity mediation, new form of identification, action and transmission, where the "we" is built from individuals as media.
