At the White House Congressional Picnic this week, Ivanka Trump played with her daughter Arabella in the Rose Garden wearing an appropriate frock for the setting: a floral print, off-the-shoulder white dress. The dress is notable not because it’s by the Ivanka Trump brand or because it’s ridiculously expensive, two lightning rod sartorial topics for which the Trump women are frequently lambasted.
In an Instagram story Kim Kardashian posted this week, she knelt to take a mirror selfie while proudly holding a package of Flat Tummy Tea (a tea cleanse that promises to increase your metabolism and energy while flattening your tummy). “My go-to this summer,” she wrote of the product. The post was clearly an advertisement for the brand, but nowhere on the story did Kim write, “#ad,” “#sponsored,” or “#spon.” Nowhere did she make it clear that she was likely being paid to post that image.
Amazon Fashion, the apparel arm of the tech giant, announced Tuesday on its website that it is launching Amazon Prime Wardrobe, a new benefit included in users’ Prime subscriptions. Here’s how it works: Prime users pick three or more items across categories like clothes, shoes, and accessories to fill a box that’s shipped to your home. You’ve got a week to try on the items and decide whether you’ll keep anything.
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".
