If there should be one word most apt to describe the full force being that is Lizzie Tisch, we'd reckon it'd have to be colorful. Bouncy blonde tresses, pops of color, and a moth-like draw to all things glitzy and bright, she's turned her critically acclaimed best dressed style into a profession with Suite 1521. A haven for all luxury sartorialists in search of a new find. What do you actually do?
Well, we're going to say the rumors that Billy McFarland, currently out on $300,000 bail for his Fyre Festival situation, is living at home are pretty true, considering his $25,000 a month penthouse is up for sale. Where, might you ask, did this aspirational ponzi scheme artist call home? Why Meatpacking District of course, for what other neighborhood would be as cheesy?
You're mingling about awkwardly in some hotel convention space. There's a sea of name-tags prominently taped onto shirts, and pockets overstuffed with business cards. You carefully scan the room for a friendly face - someone also desperate to make a meaningful connection. You find someone, but of course, they start with the ever-creative opening line, "So, what do you do?" Let's face it - professional networking can be tough. Luckily, such clumsy days are in the past. Looking for a new job?
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".
