The children of the children out on the streets today won’t believe it. Just like the kids of the sixties couldn’t believe their grandmothers didn’t have the right to vote. Just like my peers couldn’t believe their parents lived in a world with racially segregated water fountains. Just like the kids being raised by same-sex couples right now won't believe that fifty years ago, their parents would have been thrown in jail and had their names printed in the newspaper for dancing with each other.
Watching the news in the days after the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, stay-at-home mother and former corporate communications director Shannon Watts, like most of us, was outraged. America had a sickness, it was never more clear. "I knew our nation was broken and I knew I had two choices: I could try to move my family of seven to another country, or I could stay and fight," she tells Esquire.com. Shannon Watts stayed and fought.
On Wednesday, the President of the United States held a meeting about gun control on live television with Democratic and Republican lawmakers, and either he made a series of important policy statements that will reshape our nation’s future, or he made a bunch of noises with his mouth. Sitting with California Sen. Dianne Feinstein to his right— the two of them looking like an elderly Lucy and Schroeder in the darkest Peanuts timeline—Trump said things like: “I like that word, comprehensive.
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".
