According to the official Twitter Help Center a mention is "any Twitter update that contains "@username" anywhere in the body of the Tweet".

Users will often see hundreds or thousands of tweets a day in their Twitter feed. Mentioning a user in your tweet means they will be able to see it in their "@ Connect" section on the top of the Twitter page.

You would usually mention a user if you are directing the Twitter update (tweet) to that specific user OR you want them in particular to see this tweet.

If you include more than one @username in your tweet, all of those users will see the Tweet in their "@ Connect" section.

As most users mention, Twitter can be both a blessing and a curse. For those who do not have a social media interest/background, that can become a curse. However, for those who know the basic rules of using Twitter for businesses, it is a true blessing. read more on this topic on our blog post:

They're actually called "replies", "mentions", along with "@replies." (At replies.) Mentioning another Twitter user is very simple. All you have to do is use @TwitterUsername, to mention the person.

However, if you were to place it anywhere else in a tweet, others would be able to see it in their timeline.

No it doesn't include your username. However, any usernames that you mention in your tweet are included in the 140 character limit.
