Zip It including own name in mention. Why?

When I'm receiving a mention that is spam for example I want to Zip It. If I use the appropriate button, it always includes my own Twitter handle. It is obvious that I do not want to exclude myself and the tweets that I write.

Herman, 

Thank you for the post. Were you encountering this issue on Android or iPhone? I was only able to currently get my hands on an Android version and when I clicked on a spam tweet mentioning my account i clicked on the tweet and selected "Zip-It". The options from the Zip-It list did not mention my @name within the options. I apologize if I'm not understanding the issue correctly. If it displays your twitter handle within the Zip-it options you should be able to uncheck any account or term within that tweet. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Thanks,

Hi Matt,

I'm on iPhone. I should have made clear that the behaviour shows up in mentions. I often are mentioned wrongly because Twitter chops off some letters of a @username. I never want to see any messages of those people when that happens so I want to ZipThem. But because it is a @mention, my own Twitter name is in the same box as the one I want to ZipIT. So you are right, when I want to use ZipIt on the main timeline (small house), my @name is not there. Only at @Hees. 

I'm including a Zip-file with 3 screens to show what I mean.

Did this ever get looked into or fixed? Still happens every time on iPhone. Only way to add someone to ZipIt is to cancel out the names (because it includes your name, and you can't just delete it) and then type in the name of the account to "block" and choose it from the list.
