Citation analysis in Twitter: approaches for defining and measuring citations within tweets during scientific conferences describes an analysis of scientific citations in Twitter. The researchers analyzed tweets from two conference associated with the hashtags: www2010 and mla09.

They define citation in Twitter as:

  • URLs in tweets
  • Retweets
  • @-mentions, e.g., "just read an interesting paper by @sampleuser"

URL categorization:

  • Blog
  • Conference
  • Error
  • Media
  • Press
  • Project
  • Publication
  • Slides
  • Twitter
  • Other

There were quite a number of errors in the URLs in tweets.
