[Air-L] citing a tweet - blind review issues?

Hi all:

I find myself citing tweets more and more often: for instance, I had  a
question about an article I was working on and went to twitter, where the
head of the web analytics company I had a question about wrote back to me
directly, for instance, and the company provided me with a useful
infographic and quote to illustrate their point.

I want to cite the Tweet, and will, but for anyone super curious, the Tweet
and link are obvs. public and anyone can figure out it's me.

Do I care? What should we do? Is there an easy answer to this?
