You should be writing every morning. You should write every night. You should’ve finished another pilot by now, a book, some essays, something to sell. You should know “be writing” is awkward phrasing. You should stop kidding yourself. You should get 10,000 steps a day and you should work out and avoid processed carbs. You should be certain that your relationship will last and moving in together will work out. You should be ready to turn 27.
For years, a One Direction conspiracy theory has divided the notoriously fervent fandom into two camps: believers and nonbelievers. On Tumblr blogs and Twitter accounts, a rabid portion of the fan base is invested in perpetuating the rumor that singer Harry Styles and ex-bandmate Louis Tomlinson are dating and they’re both involved in an elaborate ruse to conceal the affair from the public.
"As a female [studying] Political Science, it's really difficult — sometimes, I'm not taken seriously. [But] on the cheer team, I'm a captain. Being in a leadership role gives me the incentive to put that [leadership] into how I act on a daily basis. The things that you have to do to be a collegiate cheerleader, it's not just being skinny and being pretty. It's incredibly focused around athleticism and skill. It sometimes gets a bad rap, like, 'Oh, you guys just dance around in these tiny outfits.
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".
