A little birdie told me…

Referencing tweets in term papers?

Apparently, it’s a thing.

The Modern Language Association (MLA), the guide for academic paper etiquette, now includes a tweet citation format in its handbook.  But anyone who uses tweets as foundation for a scholarly work probably doesn’t want to manually type  the info…

Right — there’s an app for that.

tweet citeTweet2Cite is a web-based tweet citation generator.

Paste your tweet into the field provided, and it spits out an MLA-approved citation!

I for one can’t wait to see if any students cite tweets this fall in my university class.

If they don’t, that may mean they aren’t reading my blog.
