Were you concerned about that ‘no deal’ cliff-edge we might drop off at the end of Brexit negotiations? Did you have a niggling worry we might have to change our standards to do a deal with America, like eating ‘chlorinated chicken’? Don’t worry – Donald Trump has made a statement to put our minds at rest. It was on Twitter, as is customary, so he didn’t go into the finer details of exactly how a trade deal with the US could work for us. But it’s definitely going to be ‘big and exciting’.
A ‘deceptive’ surgeon jailed for giving women breast operations they didn’t need has now been struck off. Ian Paterson, 59, was sentenced to 15 years in prison in May for pretending the women needed treatment for their risk of cancer. He operated on 10 patients, charging them ‘for his own gain’. A medical tribunal ruled today that his actions over 14 years were ‘serious’ and ‘intentionally harmful’ and ‘fundamentally incompatible’ with the medical professional.
Shocking footage shows a man doused with water after the latest suspected acid attack in London. Two men were taken to hospital tonight after the ‘noxious substance’ was thrown at them just before 7pm. A video posted on Twitter shows one of them with his shirt off having water poured on him to try and help him and wash off the ‘acid’. Paramedics and police officers surround him and there is a fire engine in the background.
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".
