“We went back to the network, under your applause and your prompting to go and fuck our manes.” With this post, the satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo returned today to twitter after the terrorist attacks of January 2015.
“After a technical malfunction, beyond our control in January 2015, our presence on Twitter was temporarily discontinued,” the newspaper said, accompanied by a sketch, in which a dove of the same color as the bird logo of the social networking tool, with excrement coming out and landing on the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Suite à un incident technique indépendant de notre volonté survenu en #janvier2015, notre présence sur #Twitter a été momentanément interrompue. Nous revenons sur le réseau, sous vos applaudissements et vos encouragements à aller niquer nos mères. pic.twitter.com/yhgQugoi8t

Charlie Hebdo’s last tweet was posted on January 7, 2015, on the day of the jihadist attack on the headquarters of the Paris printout that resulted in 12 editors and newspaper workers losing their lives.
The sketch was by Onores, the cartoonist, who was killed in the assault along with other iconic editors and cartoonists of the newspaper, such as Wolinski, Kambi, Sarb and Tiniu.
