Sergeant Pete Shaw of the Seven Sisters neighbourhood team tweeted: “Out and about patrolling the patch #theserioussidetopolicing.”Furious Twitter users replied to the officer, enraged they could find nothing better to do with their time. Three coppers could be see bouncing on rides in the deserted children's play park. A number of the site's users replied to the picture, claiming a number of long waiting times for police in the area.
Last night I had the opportunity to MC the Tom Jackson “Christmas 150” show at Casino Regina. I used to be a big fan of “North of 60” and had seen Jackson in a few other movie roles over the years. I had never met him before and was surprised at how tall he was when I finally got to shake his hand backstage. Another thing that surprised me was how gentle he seemed to be. He wanted me to explain what was going to happen before he got on stage.
Psychological marketing, as a concept, might sound like a Project MKUltra spinoff from the 80s - but it is being used all the time, to varying degrees and effectiveness. This is the age of both Brexit and Trump and, if some national newspapers are to be believed, neither of those things were a sheer coincidence. With the Guardian newspaper finding correlation, links and personal relationships crossing over between the two seemingly separate events, it looks as though we're being played.
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".
