Tweets of Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy on this day of reflection are powerful AF. Twitter is overflowing with pictures, videos, and quotes to pay respect to the man whose speeches and presence lead an entire movement. Tweets honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day are everything they should be for this extraordinary day. This year, MLK, Jr. Day is being celebrated on his birthday. He would have been 89 years old. It has been 50 years since he was here to celebrate with us.
Even though Martin Luther King Jr. was never the POTUS, when the national holiday honoring him comes around, we expect whoever is in office to acknowledge and commemorate his legacy. With all the angst surrounding President Trump lately and his remarks made about immigrants from Haiti and African countries, many of us were curious about how and what he'd bring to the table on MLK, Jr. Day. President Trump's MLK tweet was a video tribute and it certainly received a divided response from people.
Millennials are all guilty of over-analyzing our age in accordance to where we are in life. How can we not? And on such a day of self-reflection, MLK Jr. Day, we can owe at least one of those imperative, thought-provoking messages to Obama. President Obama's MLK tweet is resonating incredibly powerfully with millennials, and responses to his message are proof. Millennials are noted perfectionists.
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".
