And #NuitBlanche started it

Souvenir

This is our very first tweet, made especially for Nuit Blanche 2009, one of the highlights of the Parisian cultural life. But why on earth did we tweet in English ? Emotion, probably.

Success Story

It’s almost too easy. As soon as the iron lady appears on our timeline, RTs and likes go crazy. The Eiffel Tower gets everyone on board.

Kiss and ride

Mobile tweets

With @Velib in August 2010, the family circle widens. Fun fact: today these bikes will ride 237.859 km. More than ever, Paris is a moving body.

We grow with you

An important step

We really looked forward to our first 50.000 followers! And for the record, we did dance the Harlem Shake. So 2013 ! And it was only the beginning…

« Un jour de tweets à Paris »

A day of tweets in Paris

Our first social media operation, meant to marry Twitter and poetry. The idea is simple and based on a well-known text by Georges Perec: « An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris ». On the 19th of April, 2013, the city was invited to tweet about that very day: places, details, stories, feelings… in 140 characters, of course. More than 10.000 tweets were published with the impenetrable hashtag #JDTAP. Town crier even shouted the best tweets throughout Paris.

[Point météo] Avalanche de tweets prévue à Paris le 19 avril. Plus d'infos très bientôt #jdtap

Magistrale au mois de mai, la joie devient capitale, à demi nues sur les terrasses... les fraîcheurs sont admirables #jdtap

@Paris la pluie, Paris tout grisParis la nuit, Paris tu brilles
Paris tu grognes, Paris tu ris
Paris tu cries, Paris tu vis ! #JDTAP
