This paper shows how some typical communication mechanisms on social networking sites have reconfigured the phenomenon of sensationalism in journal- istic information. Analyzing newspaper headlines on social platforms, it is clear that a «minimalist sensationalism» is emerging, which is connected to a specific articulation of the concept of post-truth, that of «quick truth». The strengths and weaknesses of this new sensationalism are then examined: sometimes, it facilitates users’ access to information of public interest. In other cases, however, the intrinsic limits of online communication and the digital public sphere (often artic- ulated based on homophilic networks) lead such imprecise truths to fuel misinfor- mation and deprive users of their reflective capacities.
