Agenda Reminder

Mix of genres. Emmanuel Macron was hit on the fingers this Friday by the National Commission for the Control of the Presidential Campaign (CNCCEP).

She criticizes the outgoing president for publishing a letter to the French announcing his candidacy on the official Twitter account of the head of state. Abuse of an account intended only to spread information about his activities as president.

Thus, the commission considers that “such a message is associated with election propaganda and that, given the nature of the use of this Twitter account, it was used for a long time and mainly for messages related to the performance of his duties as president. It is advisable for the Republic not to use this account to distribute such messages.”

Following this call to order, the message was removed from Emmanuel Macron’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. Enough to give some food for thought to some of its competitors who regularly criticize this mixture of genres.

Journalist and history scholar Jean-Baptiste Pattier listened extensively to the presidents of the Fifth Republic and listed their most symbolic statements, collected in a book: Did you say mister president? published by Armand Colin.

However, it is also easy to think that the short spontaneous phrases of the past are “certainly more calculated today”, less improvised to meet the challenges of social networks and continuous news.

Why will one sentence enter the collective memory and another not? The researcher puts forward a hypothesis about the successful coincidence of the context in which it is pronounced, the atmosphere of society and the media echo.
