As social media has huge impact into academic work. Blogs are no longer just people’s personal diaries online: many blogs are considered to be authoritative and useful resources. According to Turabian citation guide, blog posts are commonly cited as notes. However, if you are frequently citing a blog in your paper, you are welcome to choose to include it in Bibliography. It has become a common practice to encourage students to seek out and cite quotes from people on Twitter in their assignments. The fair question is to arise, “how do I cite a Tweet?”. There is no much difference from citing a Website in Turabian style though.
Tweets–postings from Twitter coincided as a hands on information for research projects. The Turabian citation generator does not have an official format for citing tweets, but it is suggested using the rules associated with blogs and websites such as including the citation only in notes. Use the author’s “real” name (if you can locate it) and handle (username). Accounts that are managed by a group of people, such as those for corporations or organizations, will not have a single author. Simply use the handle for the author name. If you’re citing for a more formal work you may want to check guidelines of MLA, APA, or Chicago Style for citing blogs and Twitter.
Please note, that the date and time of a message on Twitter reflect the reader’s time zone. Readers in different time zones see different times and, possibly, dates on the same tweet. The date and time that were in effect for the writer of the tweet when it was transmitted are normally not known. Thus, the date and time displayed on Twitter are only approximate guides to the timing of a tweet. However, they allow a researcher to precisely compare the timing of tweets as long as the tweets are all read in a single time zone.
Like e-mail and text messages, comments posted on a social networking service preferably cited in running text instead of in a note, and they are rarely listed in a bibliography.
