Nicolas Cage doesn’t have to have an Internet presence to be a major presence on the Internet. The famously eccentric actor was one of the earliest online celebrity memes, and remains a subject of intense fascination in even the most far-flung corners of the world wide web, much to his amusement. “I’m aware of that phenomenon,” he told Yahoo Entertainment in 2016.
Rian Johnson cleared up a number of lingering mysteries in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including who Rey’s parents are (Answer: Nobody special) and what Kylo Ren is packing under his Grandpa Darth-inspired wardrobe (Answer: a meme-ready set of abs). But one big question we’re still left with is: What do Porgs taste like? Johnson introduced these adorable space penguins into the Star Wars mythos in The Last Jedi, where they share the remote island of Ahch-To with Jedi-turned-hermit Luke Skywalker.
Need further evidence that super-strong private eye Jessica Jones — and the show that bears her name — isn’t like any other Marvel series out there? In Season 2 of the Peabody Award-winning Netflix hit, Jessica (played by Krysten Ritter) ventures where none of her fellow Defenders have gone before: anger management therapy.
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".
