Use this template instead of {{cite web}} to use a tweet as a reference. Always keep the notability policies in mind when using Twitter (or other social media platforms) as a reference.

Copy a blank version to use. All parameter names must be in lowercase. Use the "|" (pipe) character between each parameter. Delete unused parameters to avoid clutter in the edit window. Some samples may include the current date. If the date is not current, then purge the page.
