    Hi,

    Need to exclude anything with a “@” (to avoid registering Replies to a tweet and Mensajes to specific user)

    Tried adding with a “-” and adding -%40 (which is the encoded for @), but no luck…

    Hugely grateful for some thoughts

    I think the best you can do is exclude replies to specific accounts using something like #yourtag AND -to:mhawksey

    Would this be enough?

    Hmmm…. That would remove some of it. I’ll give it a try!!!! Thanks!

    Btw, the whole TAGS does the job anyways, this was just a little fine tuning, but definitely I’ll keep using it!!

    It’s actually relatively easy to filter out those tweets using the built in Google Sheet QUERY formula. In a new sheet something like

    =QUERY(Archive!A:Q,”SELECT * WHERE NOT C CONTAINS(‘@’)”,TRUE)
