It began with a close encounter and a tweet. I was crossing 14th Street when a bike whooshed by, ignoring the red light. It was one of many close calls I’ve had in the city. If you work in Midtown, you’ve had them, too. So, feeling perturbed, I responded like the millennial I am and sent out a tweet: “Times I’ve almost been killed by a driver in New York: 2. Times I’ve almost been killed by a cyclist in New York: 3,763,459.”I put my phone away and didn’t give another thought.
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A marriage proposal is captured by a professional photographer – but to the betrothed couple, it’s a complete surprise! It was a mistake that lead to its own kind of happy ending – and not only when the bride-to-be said yes. Several hours after the Arkansas proposal, Jenny Pham and David Le, both of Dallas, discovered that it had been photographed by Jacob Peters.
MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) - Massive storms forced the Mansfield Independent School District to cancel classes at all of their campuses on Wednesday, but Thursday's schedule was left up in the air. Students did end up having school Thursday, but some parents were not made aware of those plans until just hours before the bell rang.
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".
