Forums: Helping Hand > Twitter Citations

{{Forum post|Write your message here!|~~~~}}

The only page on the site I could find that cited a Twitter post was Volothamp Geddarm, and it was made without use of a citation template. Considering the wealth of Realms information to be gleaned from Ed's twitter, would it perhaps be beneficial to formalize citations like these?
