Vice is to continue to expand its video news content, Al Brown, head of video at Vice UK, told the news:rewired conference, held in London today. Aside from being a youth-orientated online and magazine brand, his organisation prides itself on hard-news documentary videos. While outlining how the success of the brand’s online video output was helped by its broad scope, Brown was keen to emphasise that at heart the organisation was focused on serious storytelling.
Prime Minister Theresa May has offered her “huge gratitude” to the emergency services attending what she described as a “potential terrorist incident” near London Bridge. “Our thoughts are with those who are caught up in these dreadful events,” she added. A vehicle was reported to have ploughed into pedestrians in a packed street in central London before alleged knife attacks. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called the news “brutal and shocking” in a tweet.
The Tories and Theresa May did not once use Facebook or Twitter to encourage people to register to vote as the deadline loomed, analysis has shown. In the week up to the cut-off, Labour were by far the most active party in encouraging social media users to register, urging people to sign up in more than a third (36%) of their posts on Facebook and Twitter overall.
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".
