Every day that I log into Facebook, I’m hit with some Facebook Memories notification, sharing some moment from the past 12 years or so that I’ve been on the platform. Twelve years of questionable haircuts, all collected there to taunt me every day. This week, one memory popped up from not too long ago. One that didn’t include evidence of that phase where I slightly resembled early-aughts Ashlee Simpson. It was a meme I posted around this time last year.
Men are trash. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it every day until my last dying breath. Sure, some men are less trash, but rest assured, all men are at least diet trash. Yes, even you, the “good one.” The message feels that important, especially in the garbage swamp that is 2017. We’re in the midst of an epic implosion of such proportions it’s creating a necessary shift in our culture. It is mesmerizing, frightening, traumatic and about fucking time. It’s… the trashening.
I don’t know Jenny Niezgoda, but I know what she represents. For those who missed it, the travel blogger and self-proclaimed “barefoot bohemian” released a now-canceled Kickstarter campaign and accompanying video for a “plant-based cocina” and “modern fruteria” called La Gracia. She would have opened this business in the center of Barrio Logan. When she first posted the Kickstarter campaign, the backlash was almost instantaneous.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
