Cite your tweets

Spotted on Twitter – a useful blog posts on citing tweets (let’s leave aside why you’d want to cite them, and any questions over their academic validity shall we)

How to cite twitter posts in APA style

What amuses me is that makes the reference longer that the tweet in the first place!  And does one use the authors real name or twitter name to ID?  Personally I’d favour the latter, since my Twitter ID is actually a discretely different persona to my RL one.

But at least now you can have a go at capturing those moments of fleeting tweeting brilliance if you like!
