Citation Machine™ uses the 7th ed. of MLA, 6th ed. of APA, and 16th ed. of Chicago (8th ed. Turabian).
Like e-mail and text messages, comments posted on a social networking service may be cited in running text ("In a message posted to her Twitter account on August 25, 2011, . . .") instead of in parentheses, and they are rarely listed in a reference list. The following example shows a more formal parenthetical citation.
If you cite the same work as in the note immediately preceding, use “Ibid.” (meaning “in the same place”).
We are educators, citation specialists, primary source authorities, and academic researchers. That expertise is baked into our platform design and services.
