How to Cite a Tweet in a Scholarly Paper

Here is a brief “news story” from The Atlantic on how to cite a tweet in an academic paper.  This might be useful for some of my students looking to curry favor with me by citing my tweets in their research papers.  On the other hand, some of the tweets from @BibleStdntsSay would make for interesting paper fodder.

An example:  Lewis, C. S. (@NarniaJack). “Joy is the serious business of Heaven.” March 3, 2012, 7:50 PM,  Tweet.

Seriously, do not do this.
