Tiny news: Teri Polo is a real diva on the set of Freeform’s The Fosters, prompting the obvious questions: “Who? On the set of what? Airing where? Is there any platform so small it won’t go to someone’s head — Crackle? YouTube Red?”Party hardly: Lamar Odom’s birthday party drew few actual friends and was punctuated by a poet reading some verses that reminded everyone that Odom has addictions, his marriage fell apart and his mom died when he was 12. Still better than paintball.
If Justice League accomplished nothing else — and the reviews are rather mixed — it crowded the Showbiz Injustice League (Weinstein, Ratner, etc.) out of the headlines for this one blessed weekend. All’s forgiven, Zack Snyder. Her handlers were pleased to get Lady Gaga back on the road last week; without that outlet, she’s known to retreat to her closet and get a teensy bit squirrelly.
Taylor Swift announced on Monday some 2018 concert dates including a show at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Saturday, Aug. 4. Fans will have to sign up for Swift’s novel and controversial ticket-allocation system Taylor Swift Tix to see the shows, but as Billboard notes, her announcement was billed as the dates for the “Taylor Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour,” leaving open the prospect of arena shows before or after these dates. Swift’s latest album Reputation was released for sale on Friday.
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".
