Keeping up with research 2.0 – how to cite blogs, tweets…?

This is admittedly a very academic problem of geeks. Just how should one cite a blog entry or a tweet? Here are some suggestions found of course on blogs:-)

Most blogs and sharing platforms (sharing slides, pictures etc.) work with a creative commons licence. Logistikfokus explains what it means for a reference:

– Lastname, firstname (of the author of the blog entry), year, blog entry name, reference to the blog (e.g. Logistikfokus.se), URL

Tweets are quite similar but come with a funny twist, “tweet” in the end:

– Last name, first name (user name), “the tweet in its entirety”, date, time tweet.

At least this is the standard allegedly proposed (by tweet?) by the Modern Language Association.
