Mme David, whose riding is in the heart of Montréal, chimed in on the subject last night on Twitter, making many of her 12 000 or so followers laugh.
This electoral campaign is also taking place on social media. Twice a day, our journalists report the stories that are lighting up Twitter, Facebook, or Youtube.

Instant opinions, amplified points of view, events shared and magnified: social networks continue to mark the longest student conflict in the Quebec history. Is it possible to organize this galaxy of messages, to make sense of it all?
