Remember the scene in Wedding Crashers where Owen Wilson’s character tells Rachel McAdams to scratch the sarcastic toast she’s planned to give as maid of honor at her sister’s wedding and instead go with “True love is the soul’s recognition of its counterpoint in another”? She rejects what she thinks is a sappy suggestion, telling him she has it under control.
“Tried online dating once and met the man she ended up marrying” could be Rent the Runway cofounder and CEO Jennifer Hyman’s meme. She and her now-husband Benjamin Stauffer, a film and television editor, connected on the dating app Hinge, and Jenn went on her first and only online date. “I’ve always loved artists—creative, spontaneous, laid-back people—but I wasn’t meeting these types in real life,” explains Jenn.
The couple dated while living in Los Angeles, New York, and London—and then eventually got engaged in January 2014. “Justin proposed in Big Sur, a special place in general and a particularly special place to us. It was a pseudo-surprise—I can make it incredibly tough to surprise me—but what he had in store for me was completely unexpected. He orchestrated a whole celebration in Los Angeles with both of our families and best friends.
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".
