Earlier this summer, some cat (and by cat I mean dude) name Ryan wanders into a Starbucks with the intent NOT to order a Caramel Macchiato, but stick the place up. With his Optimus Prime mask firmly in place to cover up his mug, he whipped out a knife and demanded cash…and possibly the above mentioned Macchiato as well. Here’s were it gets good. I don’t know if he cut in line to rob the place or not, but if he did he jumped in front of the wrong guy.
Taco Bell announced that they will be dropping the Drive Thru and start serving booze! SAY WHAT?!?! Now if you’re anything like me, there are just times that you need to make a run to the border for a Double Chalupa Box at a time when you should actually be in bed sleeping and NOT asking for extra packets of sauce. But let’s face it…Taco Bell has this draw, it’s like some strange gravitational pull caused by a full moon.
While watching the season finale of American Ninja Warrior last night, I just sit in awe how people you think will go far end up falling…and others blow you away. My mom, God love her, thinks I should audition for the show. “Oh Chris, you should really be on that show…you would do so well and I know you could conquer Mount Midoriyama!” What I’ve tried to convince my mother of is the fact that most the contestants are…A) 30 years younger than me. B) At least 6 inches or more shorter than me.
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".
