During the attack that took place in the Champs-Elysées, several names were released to the public via social media. in partnership with Le Monde have investigated the events, tracked the data leaks and documented how the social media played an important role in misinformation during the events.
Our work shows how the very rapid disclosure of a false identity of a suspect was followed by a disputed statement of claim from the Islamic State and how a pseudonymous Twitter account, belonging to a sympathizer of the National Front, was the first public source of the personal data of the real attacker.
