Now here's something you don't see everyday...A group of people dressed as Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a giant Smurf turned have-a-go heroes during a night out in Musselburgh after the boy-wonder of the group was assaulted. The bizarre incident, which was recounted by East Lothian Police in a trio of increasingly surreal tweets, began when a man dressed as Robin was assaulted on Eskview Road in Musselburgh just before 20:00 on Friday.
A man was arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after police swooped on a petrol station on Cheetham Hill Road - 400 metres from the Manchester Arena. Police say the 20-year-old man is being held on suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act - bringing the total number of arrests in connection with the Manchester Arena investigation to 18. Six people have been released without charge and 12 men remain in custody.
Police have been scrambled to south Manchester after gunshots were reportedly heard. GMP say they are responding to reports from residents in both Longsight and Levenshulme on Monday evening. Officers have been dispatched to the area and are now investigating. A GMP spokesman said they have not been made aware of anyone being hurt and no exact locations or further details have yet been given.
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".
