Kim Jong-un has 'done the world a favour' by putting Donald Trump 'on the back foot', Corbynista Paul Mason said last night. The left-wing writer said the US president had 'fantasised' for 'all his life' about using nuclear weapons. But the North Korean regime's defiance was showing him the realities of responding to threats of mass destruction. The comments came as Mr Mason appeared on BBC Question Time last night.
Theresa May is facing the wrath of Brexiteers as she prepares to offer the EU 20 billion euros for a two-year transitional deal. In a bid to unblock negotiations, the Prime Minister will use a crucial speech in Florence to declare that Britain will cover the huge hole left in Brussels' finances by our departure until the end of 2020. But in return for the 'generous' contribution the UK must have full access to the single market during the period - and good trade terms afterwards.
Theresa May's former chief of staff has lashed out at Boris Johnson and Philip Hammond for putting Brexit at risk with pointless 'games'. Nick Timothy also complained that the Treasury is talking down the UK's prospects by failing to consider the 'positives' of cutting ties with Brussels. The blunt rebuke comes as Mrs May prepares for a crunch Cabinet meeting ahead of her big speech in Florence tomorrow.
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".
