In the world of fast food social media accounts, KFC isn't necessarily the chain you turn to for pithy humor. Wendy's kind of wears the crown. Though, some of its rivals try to tussle every now and then. Sure, some of the Colonel Sanders commercials have been funny. (Jim Gaffigan, Norm Macdonald, and Darrell Hammond, in particular, were good.) But the chicken chain might deserve a bonus high five. KFC has buried a joke on its Twitter account. It was Twitter user @edgette22 who noticed the oddity.
The meat mountain at Arby's is expanding faster than a rabbit colony. The nationwide release of venison sandwiches hasn't even arrived, and Arby's has announced their next foray, which is in addition to other adventures this year with elk, porchetta, turkey legs, pork belly, and lamb. Arby's will offer deep-fried turkey, a first for any quick service restaurant in the US.
Though it's late in the year, there are still impressive meteor showers to see before the calendar flips over to 2018. This week, you can catch the Orionids. Though the display is active from October 2 through November 7, it is expected to peak the night of October 21 into the morning of October 22. The Orionids have the fastest meteors of any shower, save November's Leonids. The meteors move at about 41 miles per second, Bill Cooke, who leads NASAâ€™s Meteoroid Environment Office, tells Thrillist.
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".
