This year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ couples have posed for their official photo-shoots, offering fans the briefest of previews of them in action ahead of their dance floor debuts over the weekend. Following the launch show earlier this month, the 15 pairs are currently hard at work in rehearsals to prepare for their live show debuts on Saturday (23 September), which will see them performing together in front of the nation for the first time.
â€˜Coronation Streetâ€™ actor Simon Gregson has posted a heartfelt message in praise of the NHS, heralding them for saving his wifeâ€™s life. Over the weekend, Simon - best known for playing Steve McDonald in the ITV soap - posted a tweet directed towards the official NHS England account, writing that the organisation had been responsible for saving his wife, Emma Gleaveâ€™s life more than once.
Comedian Susan Calman has revealed she was motivated to do ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ to prove to her five-year-old niece the importance of not letting her haters win. Susan posted a string of tweets on Wednesday morning (19 September), after hitting back at one Twitter user who called her an unkind name. She wrote: “I don’t often interact with trolls but occasionally I do. For years I thought I was fat and ugly. I’m not. And I won’t let anyone say I am. “I have a five-year-old niece.
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".
