Best news. I am a published author. That is right, PUBLISHED. Not just published in a local newspaper either. My senior thesis on Twitter and Justin Bieber (read here) was accepted into the Iowa Journal of Communication for their special edition on social media. It has been 6 months in the making, but it tastes pretty sweet to get published as an undergrad.
I know you probably need proof that it is a real thing. So, here a picture of the website.
My official APA citation is:
Taylor, S. H., & Barton, M. H. (2011). When Bieber fever strikes: using Twitter as a new medium for attack and defense communication. Iowa Journal of Communication, 43(1), 65-95.
Oh and yes, I have read the unpublished manuscript. J.K. Rowling eat your heart out.
