Spreadsheet Day 2013

Happy Spreadsheet Day 2013! In honour of this special occasion, here is a collection of my favourite spreadsheet tweets from this year.

I collect and post Excel tweets every Friday on my Excel Theatre blog. They give an interesting glimpse into the strange and wonderful ways that people use (and abuse) spreadsheets.

And remember, onions and spreadsheets don’t mix!
