Tweet (Twitter Post)

Use the person's twitter name as the author. Since tweets are short, include the tweet in its entirety. Also include the date and time it was posted as well as the URL of the tweet. You may include the date accessed if you think it is useful.

Example:

Rather, D. [@DanRather]. (2020, October 12). Waiting in line for hours to vote should be considered less a story on voter enthusiasm and more a

           story on voter suppression. No one should have to wait hours to vote [Tweet]. Twitter.
