Abstract

This paper discusses „citations‟ and „references‟ within the microblogging service Twitter with the aim to provide measures for scientific communication on this platform. It provides definitions for different types of citations on Twitter and discusses general difficulties in accessing scientific tweets. Furthermore, two different datasets that represent scientific usage of Twitter have been analyzed with respect to citation counts.
