LONDON — Another year is beginning — the festive feast has been eaten, presents are all unwrapped and the New Year hangover is raging. You could draw inspiration from clean-living social media types and make this a time of resolution, abstinence and grueling workout classes. Or you could face facts: 2017 was pretty pants, and 2018 looks little better. This list isn’t about obvious candidates: no Presidents Trump, Putin or Erdoğan here.
Thatcher was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. She had worn the EU-flag jumper. She had negotiated the rebate. She had made the speech in Bruges. But she had been dead for years now. Theresa May had taken over the firm they ran. Because they were both members of the fairer sex — as those of the Rees-Moggian persuasion are wont to say — people often confused the two.
BRUSSELS—The European Commission's antitrust authority has opened a probe into some of the continent's biggest telecommunications companies over charging content providers and third parties for faster and smoother access to their networks. France's Orange SA, Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG and Spain's Telefónica SA all said on Thursday that their offices had been searched this week as part of the investigation. The European...
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".
