Your citation will depend on what type of social media post your are citing and in which style (e.g. MLA or APA).
For example, this is how you would cite a tweet:
Last Name, First Name (Username). "Entire tweet message." Date posted, time. Tweet.
Twitter handle. (Year, Month Day). Entire tweet message. [Twitter post]. Retrieved from https://twitter.com
Consult the ‘Writing and Citing’ LibGuide (section on MLA and APA style formats) for access to guidance and tutorials on citing social media posts. In particular, there's a link on the LibGuide to the Purdue University OWL website (look for sections on MLA and APA for the format of specific types of citations, including particular social media sites).
