Citing twitter in academic work

August 8, 2013

There eventually seems to be an correct way of citing Twitter in academic work. This must give it some additional credibility as a source.

Here’s how you do it:

Last name, First name. (User name). “The full tweet.” Date, Time. Tweet.

I’m not sure what you do when you don’t know the user’s first name, last or both. I assume you just put what you do know.
