Television takes risks. In the age of Peak TV, shows take you on a journey–and the best shows take you someplace you didn’t even know was on the map. People plot their lives around avoiding spoilers for shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Stranger Things. Surprises are such a part of TV that they no longer exist solely in the domain of drama; The Good Place is a high-concept comedy that begs you to remain clueless, lest you ruin the show’s constant surprises.
I drink Coke. I eat Subway for lunch. My apartment is filled with Apple products. I go out of my way to go to New York City’s lone Chili’s. My life, like your life, is filled with brands. I see logos every day, be they in the mirror or on my desk or at the bar on a Friday night. The prevalence of ads can be annoying, specifically ones you’re forced to watch in taxis or before movies.
Winter still has a vice grip on most of the country, meaning the smartest way to spend your nights is cuddled up on the couch sipping a piping hot bev. The best company for those couchtastic nights? A new movie, one that will take your mind off of the world surrounding you! You’re in luck, because new flicks are available for you to stream every week.
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".
