On March 17, fans (me) were thrilled to see Bill Hader's infamous Saturday Night Live (SNL) character Stefon, known for his inappropriate suggestions for tourists, make his return to the show after a four-year hiatus. And it was epic, to say the least. The video of Bill Hader's return as Stefon on SNL includes quirky ways to celebrate St. Patrick Day, a brief cameo from a former SNL collaborator, and so much more. I should also probably say: brace yourself.
Saturday Night Live (SNL) would not be Saturday Night Live without its iconic spoofs of political figures. So it was fair game when, on March 17, United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos became the show's target. During SNL's Weekend Update, Kate McKinnon performed a spot-on impression of DeVos, mocking the government official's heavily-criticized 60 Minutes interview, in which she stumbled to answer basic questions related to education in our country.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's romance is one of my favorite love stories. Just seeing the way she looks at him, or even watching her grow so close to her soon-to-be sister-in-law Kate Middleton in such a short amount of time, makes me smile inside. And who could forget about Prince Harry's admirable gestures toward his fiancée, like when he took her to see Hamilton for Valentine's Day? (*swoons*) TBH, they just seem like they're meant for each other and are gonna be together forever.
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".
