So, I’m sitting at dinner last night and someone asks me ‘were you following the crazy ass day Chrissy Teigen had on Twitter?’ I pop over to Twitter, and I’m legit shocked by the ridiculous day that I could see unfold in my feed. Chrissy Teigen is working out the kinds on a new Banana Bread recipe for her second cookbook, and she needed 6 rotten/brown bananas to make that bread.
Actor Dave Franco (21 Jump Street, Neighbors) was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night where he talked about his cats. Dave’s got 2 cats, and he’s a cat guy. I won’t judge him for this because I also found out in this interview that Dave’s married to GLOW star Alison Brie. She’s one of the baddest chicks in Hollywood right now so the fact that Dave shares a marital bed with her absolves him of being a creepy cat guy.
The iPhone 8 hit stores today, and that means it was released in Australia yesterday because of the change in time zones. Typically, whenever a new iPhone is released there are comically long lines of Apple Fan Boys camping out overnight (for up to a week) to get their hands on the new iPhone. This time around, Apple devotees are in a unique situation because there are two iPhones being released, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
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".
