Anyone thinking of adopting Scooter should know a few things about him first. He is a bully and he bites. When he’s bored or anxious, he plucks out his own feathers. Arrr! It turns out that parrots—the most popular pets behind dogs and cats—aren’t...
There are two types of people in this country, and their differences have nothing to do with politics. “There are those who love fall and those who hate it,” says Harvard psychiatrist John Sharp, who wrote “The Emotional Calendar,” which explores how we feel about the seasons and why. Fall marks the end of the relaxed summer, which some people mourn, and the return to routine and order, which others relish. Kim Petrolo...
Sixty years ago, the baby boom peaked with 4.3 million babies being born. That means more boomers than ever are becoming sexagenarians at a rough rate of 491 an hour. That’s a lot of candles. Two of them, teenage sweethearts Mike and Robin Hamlin threw an “120” party in honor of each reaching that milestone birthday this year. They invited about 100 people, had a live band and danced to Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk. “I could care...
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".
