For reasons still unknown, Lil Mama who has recently undergone a very impressive style transformation, showed up to the 2017 MTV VMAs with a strange accessory in tow. She stunned in a floor length red gown but instead of a purse, she carried a live bird in a birdcage. Naturally, though it matched her outfit. Then of course, the bird was set free for everyone to see but why the bird was even there in the first place is still cryptically unknown.
In fashion, like anything, it’s important to have friends. And Danielle Prescod is one of our favorites. The writer/social media wizard/general do-er of interesting things is going to bring us along on a few of her adventures this summer in a series we’re calling: Danielle Does. First up, a BBQ in The Hamptons hosted by none other than Chrissy Teigen. The first time I met Chrissy Teigen, we were throwing back wine at a dinner in Soho. Like, really throwing back.
It's finally here: the dreaded polar vortex! Just like Al Roker promised, temperatures are dropping to the subzero level, but fear not, as we have prepared a handy survival guide. These five tips are recommended (sort of) for navigating today's slightly alarming weather pattern. How to Get to Work: Team of Sled DogsWho cares if there is no snow? The drop in temperatures means that getting from point A to point B will be that much more difficult.
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".
