Q. When using APA style, do I italicize Twitter and Facebook if used in the paper?


No, Facebook should not be italicized in your APA-formatted paper.  Twitter is not italicized either.

Italics are reserved for titles of:

  • Books
  • Journals
  • Magazines
  • Films
  • TV shows.  See the APA Help guide for examples.

Please contact your campus librarians if you need further help.
