The Internet can be an ugly place, and lately, comedian Leslie Jones has been dealing with the worst of it: a Twitter troll campaign waged against her, and now a hack exposing personal information.
Brad Parscale is a survivor-at least in Donald Trump's universe. Today, Parscale, Trump's digital director, is one of the last men standing as the Trump campaign's revolving door keeps spinning. And with 80 days left in the campaign, he's about to get a lot busier.
Donald Trump accepted campaign chairman Paul Manafort's resignation today in the wake of a growing scandal around Manafort's ties to a pro-Putin political party in Ukraine.

Mere hours ago, Donald Trump demoted his Russophile campaign manager Paul Manafort and replaced him with the head of news at Trump-ophile website Breitbart.

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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
