In 2013, when Edward Snowden revealed the extent of the mass surveillance being orchestrated by the US National Security Agency (NSA), civil liberties groups around the world were alarmed. So, too, were individuals such as Max Schrems, the Austrian campaigner whose legal action against Facebook led the European Court of Justice to declare Safe Harbour invalid in October 2015.
Alleged computer hacker Lauri Love's "life will be destroyed" if he is extradited to the US under Donald Trump's presidency, his lawyers said today. Love's New York-based attorney, Tor Ekeland, said the presidential election result was likely to impact badly on Love.
The home secretary, Amber Rudd, has signed off on a US extradition request made against the alleged computer hacker Lauri Love. Love faces charges of hacking into key US institutions, including Nasa, the FBI and the Federal Reserve Bank, in a string of security attacks between 2012 and 2013.
@openreachGB That was a question requiring an answer. You have sent a team a long way without making sure anyone would be in and it has cost at least one person a day's work. Does anyone at BT feel like dealing with this?
@OpenreachGB Is it standard practice for you to send contractors 300 miles to change a telegraph pole on private enclosed land without informing owners, & those with wires in their gardens - or customers that needed Internet today? Or are your Comms systems not fit for purpose? https://t.co/Up6II4Mtrm
@LairBob@nlitchfield@ShelbyTree@patrickggreen Potentially, I suppose, but what kind of legal liability might one incur - might the recipient of intrusive messages incur - by sharing evidence that a fast food delivery outfit is not taking breaches of the DPA seriously? Are you talking about the UK?
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".
