Over the course of the last few months, Conor McGregor has managed to turn trolling Floyd Mayweather into a science. He has figured out all sorts of different ways to troll the undefeated boxer, and he has, up until this point, owned Mayweather in their ongoing war of words. But could Mayweather pull off the ultimate troll move just minutes before the two fighters get into the ring on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas?
It doesn’t seem like it’s all that difficult to get under Kevin Durant’s skin on social media. Over the last few years, KD has gotten into the habit of reading his mentions on Twitter and responding accordingly. He went in on a bunch of trolls who tried to attack him on Twitter after he won his first NBA title in June and added to his growing list of epic Twitter clapbacks in the process. And it doesn’t appear as though KD is going to let up anytime soon, either.
How did we get here? Less than a week ago, despite a relatively slow start to their offseason, the Cavaliers were still favored to make a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals next season. They hadn’t been able to add a major piece to their roster like some Cleveland fans hoped they would, but they still had LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love on their team—and that alone would likely be enough to get them back to the Finals at the conclusion of the 2017-18 NBA season.
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".
