Your Twitter mentions in an Excel sheet

It is now possible to retrieve a history of the mentions of a Twitter account into an Excel sheet.

Registered users of Exceltweets, a webservice that makes using Twitter with Excel easy, can retrieve up to the last 800 mentions of their account, and store them in an Excel sheet for any further analysis to their own specifications.
The maximum of 800 mentions is a limit imposed by Twitter, which can be restrictive for some accounts that receive many mentions. For those accounts there is the possibility to use a search tool to find mentions of their account. Where search has a the restriction that it only goes back about 7-8 days, it does not have the limitation of 800 results.  On the download page of Exceltweets there is also a sample Excel sheet that can be used for search.
