"Ultimately what you type on your phone is going to end up on TSN, ESPN, 'SportsCenter,' and thatâ€™s the power of it." The social-media landscape has been particularly treacherous for professional athletes during the past week. NBA superstar Kevin Durant, in a third-person voice, disparaged his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates and coach from his verified Twitter account.
A wide-eyed Scott Hartnell boarded a plane 17 years ago and closed them soon after takeoff. The Predators were headed to Japan for a season-opening series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and their 18-year-old rookie chose to doze during the first leg of his first NHL road trip. When Hartnell woke, his shoes had been swiped by a veteran player, so he traversed the terminal without them. "Once we got through the next gate and I was sitting there, I was like, 'Someone's got to have them.
The Predators' search for their next captain, which included input from multiple tiers of the organization, led them to two names — Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis. Coach Peter Laviolette met individually with the defensemen, and before concluding each interview, he posed the same question. "If you're not the captain of this team," Laviolette said, "who should be the captain?" "It didn’t take either one of them long to give each other’s name," Laviolette said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
