WARSAW—Before a packed session of Parliament last month, Poland’s new prime minister reeled off the names of “ordinary extraordinary people” who had fought for Polish freedom, including some who had resisted the Nazis and others from the Solidarity movement that brought down Communism. The prime minister, who put his own aunt on the list, made a telling omission. “And Walesa?” one lawmaker finally called out. The...
Romania’s president named a new prime minister on Wednesday, the country’s third in a year, as the ruling party tried to survive one of the biggest anticorruption movements in modern European history. Viorica Dancila, a member of the European Union parliament, will lead the country of 20 million people if Romania’s legislature approves her nomination, as it is expected to.
PRAGUE—Czechs are voting in the first round of presidential elections Friday and Saturday and a world power is on the ballot: Russia. President Miloš Zeman is seeking a second term and has cast himself as Vladimir Putin’s partner in Europe. Prague’s relationship with Moscow is “10 times” more important than with neighbors like France, he told the Russian president in November, chitchatting in Russian in front of journalists who he berated for their inability to speak the language.
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".
