It never really takes much for Lena Dunham to find herself in hot water on social media, but the Girls creator ended up being dragged to no end by Twitter users over the weekend, following her recent comments defending Girls writer Murray Miller against recent sexual assault allegations. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller has been accused of sexual assault by actor Aurora Perrineau.
As much we all probably hate to admit it, there's nothing like a celebrity feud to bring the internet together for some entertainment — except when two of your favorite celebs are rumored to hate each other. It can be hard to think about your faves not getting along, but the news of Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé hanging out at Serena Williams' wedding might be enough to squash those pesky rumors about their rocky relationship once and for all.
Shopping at Target is already hard. You know how it goes: You walk in with a plan to buy only one thing yet, somehow, you always manage to emerge from the store an hour later with a shopping cart full of items you never planned on picking up in the first place. And that's probably going to happen to you a few more times thanks to a new candy that's currently being sold at Target: Peanut Brrr-ittle M&Ms.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
