The “gayfish” episode of South Park, in which a disillusioned Kanye West can’t wrap his head around a simple joke about fish sticks, has become a classic since its initial airing in 2009. A few years later, Kanye returned to the show and realized that Kim Kardashian is probably a hobbit. Now, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have added another chapter to their relationship with Kanye, and while their previous jabs were mostly in good fun, this latest one doesn’t leave them looking so great.
For years now, Broad City‘s Abbi Abrams (Abbi Jacobson’s character) has been perpetuating the lie that she trains Shania Twain at the gym where she works. Well, it turns out that the myth has turned into a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy, since Twain actually appeared on last night’s episode (titled “Twaining Day”) and worked out at Soulstice. Twain’s appearance was more than just a simple cameo, because she was really all over the episode.
1991 was a huge year for Right Said Fred, when their one-hit-wonder single “I’m Too Sexy” was released, and now, 2017 has also been pretty great for the duo. They got a co-writing credit on Taylor Swift’s smash hit single “Look What You Made Me Do,” and this isn’t an opportunity they’re about to let go to waste.
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".
