When Joe Scarborough turned 50, he realized he was going to die, so he finally did what he had wanted to do since his teenage years—be a rockstar. "It is the worst rock 'n' roll story ever," the former Republican congressman prefaced his explanation for how his band, creatively titled Scarborough, came together. "Guys don't realize that they're going to die until they turn 50. They're stupid—like women know this all along."
When Steve Bannon was ousted as Donald Trump's chief strategist in August, the nationalist firebrand generated loads of buzz about his post–White House future. "Steve is now unchained. Fully unchained," a source close to Bannon told the Atlantic. "He's going nuclear," another friend told the magazine. America should prepare itself for "Bannon da barbarian," he reportedly told his own pals. But for all the big talk, the alleged conquerer has yet to make much of a mark with his new persona.
Jimmy Kimmel revealed himself to be a powerful voice in the healthcare debate back in May, when the late-night host surprised America with a heartfelt monologue recounting the moment when he learned his newborn son had a congenital heart defect.
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".
