    PowerPivot to Analyze Tweets

    Thought this was kind of interesting... Microsoft's solution for analyzing tweets.

    It's a shame that they can only pull in a few days though... I'd prefer to see a few months of data personally, but I guess that's a Twitter limitation.

    Hi Ken,

    Yes, this is tool is very interesting and cool and I also think, the limitation may
    be from Twitter :-)

    However, users who are not using an English (US) date and system format on
    their Windows will encounter a problem when updating the tables due to a
    PowerPivot Bug.

    So, these users (like me) may firstly change the system date and time format
    to English (US) before starting Excel and running Twitter Analyzer data Updates.

    Best regards :-)

    Ouch. That's not good!

    I saw the following comment on Twitter this morning regarding this one: "Tried out MS' Analytics for twitter. Cool idea, but takes way too many steps to refresh with new search results. #powerpivot"

    While not specifically an issue with this add-in, I couldn't agree more. We need a VBA interface to kick off automatic refresh.
