In an era where political affiliation is an unprecedented romantic deal breaker, it was really only a matter of time before the world was graced with the likes of TrumpDating, which is—you guessed it—a dating site aimed squarely at Trump supporters. The site, which is plastered with stock photos of white people smiling and notably only accepts straight people, promises to "make dating great again" by helping people find "the America first partner of [their] dreams."
Beloved spoof publication MAD magazine is getting a makeover. The humor mag announced via Twitter today that it will effectively set the clock back to zero, launching a "first issue" in April to coincide with its new look. Owned by DC Comics, a subdivision of Time Warner, MAD is helmed by former Simpsons artist Bill Morrison, who took over for longtime editor John Ficarra last year, making the controversial decision to shift the magazine's headquarters from New York to Los Angeles.
Valentine's Day is over. Phew! And though you may think you sealed the deal with your S.O. thanks to the dozen red roses and fancy meal you sprang for yesterday, think again. Netflix has turned the horrifying dating app from Black Mirror's "Hang the DJ" episode into a reality, and while it's technically just a promotional tool that has no actually bearing on reality (that we know of), it's still a little scary to have a computer tell you how long your relationship will last.
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".
