Internet trolls are spreading fake claims of violence at screenings of “Black Panther,” the historic movie poised to be 2018’s first blockbuster. The film, set in a technologically advanced African country that was never colonized, is being hailed for its representation of black culture and has already broken records for ticket sales. Some Twitter users, however, are trying to sabotage the movie with false claims of racially motivated assaults at screenings around the country.
The famed groundhog Punxsutawney Phil told us there will be six more weeks of winter, and in a break from tradition, his handler reminded crowds there’s only a few days until the Super Bowl. Spectators have been turning out to see Phil’s predictions since 1887, but this year, Vice President and Fair Weatherman of the Groundhog Club, Jeff Lundy, added to the fanfare by cheering “dilly, dilly,” a call back to what is quickly becoming one of the most popular commercials ahead of Sunday’s game.
Being in the limelight has its perks, but it also has its downside: Celebrities can be targeted for ill intent. From Kim Kardashian's well-publicized Paris robbery to the notorious "Bling Ring," see which crimes have befallen your favorite celebrities, as based on media and other reports. Kelly Clarkson told Extra in a November 2017 interview that her Los Angeles home she shares with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and their children had been burglarized.
@b_sharpy So did all the other songs in the category... also just because something is HUGE doesn’t mean it gets to take home all the awards. “Star Wars: The Force was a HUGE movie that was never nominated for best picture
FYI I’m still not over Ed Sheeran winning a Grammy for his song about a woman’s body when Kesha’s song was about overcoming sexual assault and coming to terms with personal trauma ..... and he wasn’t even there but it’s chill I’m fine
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".
