Say you have a saved search on Twitter. Is there a client that will allow me to export the data contained in that search into an Excel spreadsheet?

I am wondering if this will somehow involve the functionality Twitter provides of letting you subscribe to an RSS feed of a search. Is there an RSS reader that would do the exporting I'm looking for?

SocialMention might be what you're looking for. You can export historical Tweets (and other mentins) to a .CSV.

Also, Topsy works well when it comes to searching for historical Tweets by keyword.


The following article seems promising. It makes use of RSS to achieve what you want:
