And so, with the longest episode of the entire series, Game of Thrones’ penultimate season has come to an end. The season has been a mixed bag; one of big spectacles, fast-forwarded plot lines and questionable character choices along the way. BEST PARLAY PERFORMANCE: DAENERYS TARGARYEN“My apologies.” As every millennial knows, there is nothing like making someone wait for you, and then strolling in with an easy apology.
A lot of jokes have been made about this episode, which finds seven of Westeros’ ragtag-iest bros (Jon Snow, Gendry, Tormund, Toros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, Jorah Mormont and the Hound) being the “Ocean’s Eleven” of Game of Thrones, but let’s face it: a gang of ne’er-do-well guys go on a journey to find a dead body and conversation and growth ensues? C’mon… this is pure Stand By Me.
Season 6 of Game of Thrones ended on one of the series’ most iconic images: Daenerys, flanked by Tyrion and her allies finally sailing for Westeros at the head of an armada of Dothraki, Unsullied, Martells and Tyrells. For over a year, fans have been at the ready for the resulting mayhem. Now, halfway through the Season 7, and GoT still has yet to meet the high bar it’s set for itself.
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".
