You know how it is with umpires -- they only get mentioned when they screw up.Not this time.In an amazing story, full readable (here), John Tumpane basically saved someone's life on the way to Wednesday's Rays game.Kind of makes the loss a lot more tolerable.photo courtesy Getty Images
Decent chance you've never heard of Tim Quarterman, but he's been traded from the Portland Trailblazers -- thank goodness.Because in return, the Blazers welcomed in... pic.twitter.com/gzKjiAvgJE— Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) June 28, 2017 It got better. They held a press conference. Nicely done, Blazers! "This trade is a blessing. I'm ready to grind, Rip City. I think I can make an immediate impact out on the floor."
We think this may be the best dog ever. This dog's chasing an ambulance with his dad inside â€” and he's NOT letting it leave him behind đ?śđ’ž pic.twitter.com/12ZyxS20tH— The Dodo (@dodo) June 23, 2017 But this dog is not so bad himself. This dog brings water to umpires in exchange for head pats and is completely satisfied with it đ˜?đ˜‚ pic.twitter.com/0bRwGX9ZsM— Tweet Like A Girl (@TweetLikeAGirI) June 27, 2017 photo courtesy Getty Images
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".
