It wasn't Waiting for Frank Ocean, but Aphex Twin fans were still a tad vexed when the mysterious countdown website he launched in June started slowing down as it neared its July 6 deadline. One Aphex enthusiast even devised a graph to trace the clock's attempts to bend the passage of time. Others assumed Richard D. James was just trolling, which wasn't unreasonable considering he once closed out a DJ set by dropping a microphone into a blender.
Quinceañeras at the Capitol wearing sashes that say "No SB4," "accountability," "family unity." #15contraSB4 #SB4IsHate pic.twitter.com/OXQQHAon79— Dani Marrero Hi (@danimarr94) July 19, 2017Protesting Texas's discriminatory new "Show Me Your Papers," and reminding everyone that teen girls are the best ever, 15 young activists in gowns and tiaras staged a quinceañera on the steps of Austin's State Capitol yesterday.
This article was originally published by i-D US.A Beyoncé lookalike is always going to pale in comparison to the real deal, but the "Beyoncé" wax figure currently on view at Madame Tussauds took that fact a bit too literally. A photo of the statue was posted by a fan who had visited the museum's Orlando outpost recently, and safe to say, Twitter is not impressed by this Illuminati mess. The Beyhive even got the hashtag #TussaudsSoWhite trending in reaction to the whitewashed disaster.
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".
