For months, one of the biggest mysteries about Spider-Man: Homecoming was the identity of Zendaya‘s character, Michelle. One of the most popular theories was that Zendaya is playing Mary Jane Watson in the film. While Zendaya and the filmmakers have repeatedly shot down that rumor, even Zendaya didn’t know which part she would play until she officially signed on. “I play a character named Michelle, but nobody believes me,” said Zendaya while appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
Star Wars fans received a massive shock yesterday when Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were suddenly fired by Lucasfilm just a few weeks before the film was supposed to wrap. Make no mistake, it is a very rare event for Hollywood directors to be removed during principal photography of a blockbuster movie. But apparently the issues that Lord and Miller had with their bosses finally reached peak Death Star and there’s no turning back now.
Jon Snow is the King in the North, and he knows where the real war is. But in the seventh season of Game of Thrones, Jon may miss a threat closer to home. In a newly released trailer for GoT’s seventh season, Littlefinger’s words of poison and discord echo in Sansa Stark’s ears as Jon takes the battle to the White Walkers beyond the Wall. From Sansa’s point of view, Jon may have inadvertently stolen her birthright as the eldest Stark child.
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".
