Q. How does Chicago treat Twitter handles? Do you lowercase (or capitalize) them consistently, or do you follow the user’s preference? For example, how would you style the following handles in a story: @roseannecash, @ElizabethHurley, @leannrimes.

A. CMOS is silent on the issue, but it’s probably best to cap them the way they appear at the Twitter site, since that’s the way the owners styled them.
