President Trump, a man who heroically escaped military service by claiming he had a boo-boo on his footsy, appears to have randomly decided this morning to remove transgender soldiers from the United States military.ÂIt's unclear what the actual policy implications of Trump's tweetstorm will be, seeing as how it takes more than a few steps for a tweet to become policy. The American public and trans members of the military, though prepared for the worst, were largely caught off guard.
Jared Kushner put on his big boy pants yesterday and headed to the Senate to courageously testify in front of the public — sorry, I meant: speak not under oath behind closed doors. Monday was one of the first times anyone in America has heard Kushner speak, and boy were they treated to a show. Kushner began his brief public statement with the opening sentence: "My name is Jared Kushner," which is how I often began my penpal letters as a second grader.
President Trump has a big, beautiful plan to drain the Boy Scout swamp and replace it with something every child will love: yachts. Trump delivered a speech to the Boy Scouts last night that addressed key themes in Scout history: his electoral victory, the size of his Inauguration crowd and orgies with famous men. As only an outsider like Trump understands, President Obama somehow magically weakened the Scouts — and it's time they learned how to be real men like our heel spurred President.
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".
