Question
I am starting a new novel, and want to include Twitter postings.  How would you show Twitter messages in the text of a chapter?

Thanks,

Rick

Answer
You cannot post Twitter postings UNLESS they are ones YOU posted but NOT OTHER PEOPLE'S.

That is plagiarism and infringement.

Yours can be published because they belong to you-- you wrote your postings on Twitter.

As far as format goes, I have no clue. Be creative. I've never seen it done.
