Understand the mode of enunciation of subjectivity in the digital space is a way to understand the way society is set up now, we want to explore our corpus driven by concerns that are recurrent us. In this sense, we elect Twitter as a territory to be discovered, a swarm of mean-ings, a walk among bodies, words, gestures, in 140 characters we move to another place of pro-duction of the "things to know" the information itself . An ambience that overflows / empties, which is woven in this game and the contradiction leads us to other questions by / between the borders of language. What changes in the constitution of the subject in twittosfera? That slips are possible in real time? In what respect such tweets reverberate in society / the internet in space? What language is this in 140 characters? What can the scientific disclosure in this space? We do not intend to seek answers to these questions, what we aspire is to break the boundaries of cyber-space discursive, the boundaries that slip of / in the constitution of the subject / in configuring the Twitter, thinking about crossing of the politician, the constant movement of incompleteness of language , in the way it gives the social organization within and outside the site. There are marks on the site that allow us to think of elsewhere, the invisible, the unfulfilled, the impossible, possi-bility for transfer from one world to another? Where is the border, the boundary? Being subject is subject to be signifier in the history ... And that's where we are interested in the movement, which is what we do not know where it goes. (AU)
