- Use the real name of the Twitter user if it is known, rather than the user name.
- Use the title of the post if it has one. Otherwise the content of the tweet is entered in it's entirety. If the text is very long it can be shortened to the first 25-30 words.
- The date of retrieval should be stated for all electronic sources, in addition to the year of publication. This is written as shown above, in square brackets with the word "cited". The reason for this is that electronic sources may theoretically get edited and the information in them can then change. For this reason it is important to indicate at what time you studied an electronic source.
