Hashtag campaigns are not as viscerally powerful as the student-led protests that have emerged since the Parkland, Florida, school shooting last week, but the #BoycottNRA effort has already had a surprisingly swift impact. Enterprise Holdings—parent of car rental companies Enterprise, Alamo, and National—as well as Symantec and First National Bank of Omaha have all dropped their partnerships with the N.R.A.
CNN has hosted plenty of town hall discussions between elected officials and their constituents, but none have featured the vivid emotion—and, at some points, barely contained rage—as the event they hosted Wednesday night. In an arena in Sunrise, Florida, students, parents, and teachers from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School demanded gun control from their elected officials and an NRA spokeswoman. Some, like Senator Marco Rubio, went viral for how outmatched they seemed by the teens.
Tiffany Haddish is already having a very good year. The bestselling author, Super Bowl commercial darling, and breakout star of Girls Trip is hosting the MTV Movie and TV Awards on June 18, MTV confirmed Thursday. “Tiffany Haddish is quickly establishing herself as one of the most sought-after actresses and comedic talents in television and film,” MTV wrote in a press release following a tweeted video of Haddish announcing the news.
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".
