Exceltweets is working again. However we are now carefully monitoring the use of Exceltweets, because we do not want anyone using our application to perform
actions that are against the Terms of Service of Twitter. This means that all excel codes are now revoked and you need to register a new excel code for your
Twitter account. It looks like we are not experiencing any abuse issues, so we are relaxing the limits that we are imposing to the following:
You cannot send more than 120 tweets per hour (was 30). If
you reach this limit, you will have to wait until the next hour starts.
No more checking of tweets per minute (was 1 per minute).
If your tweet
request reaches Twitter and it is rejected, we will check the error message. If the error is related to a ToS violation, we will suspend the violating
account from using Exceltweet. Please try to avoid duplicate message errors. It looks sloppy and eventually may be regarded as suspicious activity.
If you feel you need more relaxed limits, and believe you can still stay withing limitations imposed by Twitter, just
With ExcelTweets you can perform Twitter tasks in Excel without the need to integrate Oauth in your Excel sheets, download external libraries,
register an application with Twitter, and lots of other tedious stuff to make it work. Exceltweets allows you
to create highly customizable Excel sheets that make calls to various Exceltweets webpages to download Twitter data, which can be subsequently
processed in your Excel sheets for your own private use.
How does it work:
When you sign in with Twitter (which takes care of all the Oauth stuff), you will be asked to create an Excel code that you
need, together with your Twitter username, to make calls from your Excel sheet to the ExcelTweets webpages. We do not need your Twitter password
and you can always revoke access to your account here.
We will also ask you if you want to follow and be followed back by the Mr_Exceltweets account
, but this is entirely up to you. After this there is no need to come back to the website, unless you want to
change your codes, read information on the available resources, or download sample Excel sheets. Please note that ExcelTweets will never take
any action with your account, unless it is requested by you through your Excel sheets. It is a Twitter client that only acts
on your initiative. Also note that no requested data is stored on our servers. The data you request goes straight to your Excel sheets.
Once you have created an Excel code you can click the download option and use the available spreadsheets, which you can use as a basis to futher enhance the functionality of your Excel sheets.
