MLA Citation Style, 8th Edition

This guide will provide rules and examples for using MLA citation style.

Tweet (Twitter Post)

Use the person's twitter "handle" as the author. Since tweets are short, include the tweet in its entirety. Include the date and time posted, as well.

Example:

@realDonaldTrump. "Wow, the Fake News media did everything in its power to make Republican Healthcare victory look as bad as possible. Far better than Ocare!" Twitter, 5 May 2017, 4:22 p.m., twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/860635815277453313

*Remember to omit the http:// and https://

Email

Use the sender/writer of the email as the author and the subject line as the title. Then state who it was received by and include the date.

Example:

Sparks, Kellie. "July M&O Meeting." Received by Britt McGowan, 25 June 2018.
