Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín Guzmán Loera—commonly known as “El Chapo”—is back in captivity following a shootout with Mexican authorities early Friday morning, ending a six-month manhunt for one of the drug world’s most notorious killers. News of El Chapo’s capture prompted celebration and relief throughout Mexico, but some Americans took a glass-half-empty view of the cartel leader’s capture. After all, if El Chapo isn’t around, who else can stop Donald Trump?
University of Missouri students were terrified and on edge after menacing online threats and late-night campus unrest. “I’m going to stand my ground tomorrow and shoot every black person I see,” an anonymous user posted to the social media app Yik Yak late Tuesday. “Some of you are alright. Don’t go to campus tomorrow,” read another post. By early Wednesday morning, the University of Missouri Police said they apprehended the suspect who posted threats on YikYak and other social media platforms.
Pop quiz, hotshot: You have a weak starting rotation but can’t sign anyone because your current starters cost all of the money, what do you do? Well, if you’re the New York Yankees, you trade for maybe the scariest closer in all of baseball. Because reasons. The Yankees’ acquisition of fireballer Aroldis Chapman from the Cincinnati Reds on Monday gives them potentially the best bullpen in baseball since the team already has a monster setup man/closer duo in Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller.
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".
