For citations of Tweets and Facebook updates, it’s best to list the citation under the author's user name as written on Twitter and Facebook, followed by the date the Tweet or status was posted. For Tweets the entire text should be included in the place of the title, while Facebook updates may list the entire status or, if the status is very long, a truncated version of the post in the title position. For clarity, it’s helpful to provide a description of form inside brackets, such as Twitter post or Facebook update.
