Template:CiteTwitter invokes function twitterref in Module:References using Lua.

Usage

Remember to only cite tweets made by Jagex-approved accounts. A list may be found here.

{{CiteTwitter|author=|url=|quote=|date=|archiveurl=|archivedate=|notes=|name=}}

author

The author of the tweet(s). Include "Mod" prefixes, such as "Mod Mark" instead of simply "Mark". Use their mod name rather than their twitter name.

url

The url of the tweet in question. In case of multiple tweets, use the url of the first one in the conversation that is being cited.

quote

The exact transcript of the tweet(s) in question. In case of multiple tweets, cite them as one. Exclude tags (#example) and replies (@example)

date

The date the tweet was posted in the format dd month yyyy.

Standard parameters

The following parameters are standard across all citation templates.

notes

Optional. This parameter allows you to add text beginning one space after the end of the citation. Having no formatting (meaning you will have to format it yourself), this area can be used for anything you require.

name

Optional. If you want to use this reference more than once, you must name it the first time you use it, then whenever you want to use it again, add {{NamedRef|name}} wherever you want it to re-appear.

group

Optional. This can be used to put the reference into a specific group, to separate it from other types of reference. See here for more on reference groups.
