When you’re behind the wheel of your car and your favorite song comes on the radio, you feel as though you can do anything. When the windows are rolled up, it’s like you’re in your own personal recording booth and the natural instinct is to belt out whatever’s on the radio like you’re the headlining act at Coachella. It’s something that I do every morning to the sweet strains of Toto’s “Africa” as I roll into the Nerdist parking lot. But what if my windows were down?
By all accounts, Michael Bay’s Transformers movies are a spectacle of steel, sports cars, and super-sized ‘splosions. It’s a relentless onslaught of visual stimuli meant to overload and overwhelm you with non-stop action and truly dazzling, outrageously expensive supercars.
After 17 years of X-Men movies, it’s about damn time for some new mutants. Specifically, the New Mutants, Marvel’s early 1980s answer to the Teen Titans. Along with Deadpool 2 and Dark Phoenix, the fan-favorite superhero team is set to make its way to the silver screen in 2018 under the direction of Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), with a bevy of talented stars like Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams, The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton, to name a few.
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".
