Cis woman Alice recently befriended a non binary femme named Mariah, who uses They/Them pronouns. Fortunately, after reading a handy dandy guide on gender neutral pronouns, Alice was quick to catch on. However, unbeknownst to Alice were the kudos points that come with consistent, correct pronoun use.
Happy Tuesday, all. Like other Tuesday’s, it’s possible you woke up in the morning, or maybe you woke up in the afternoon. Many of us may have just woken up at this very moment. You may have had breakfast, or skipped it because breakfast isn’t your thing. Maybe you’re working today, or you may have the day off and a nice little break from capitalism. Good for you! Interestingly enough, many of us will enjoy fireworks on this average, ordinary day.
Pride month is here and with it comes the limited edition Pride reaction button, of which many have made great use. Molly’s one of those people. Lately, cisgender ally Molly noticed a lot of black and brown transgender people in her timelines asking for money, from mundane things like school to medical expenses and covering gender affirmative surgeries. She’s even seen people asking for money for their art work. “It’s like they want to get paid for literally everything.” Molly explained.
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".
