So Cash Hughes is the new viral star of Love Island, Chris is everybody Iâ€™ve spoken toâ€™s favourite islander and he and his partner Olivia havenâ€™t argued for an entire day. You could say itâ€™s all going swimmingly, with just days to go until the final potentially bags them fifty grand, but thereâ€™s one big problem that keeps rearings its uglyÂ head: Oliviaâ€™s sexist language. No, weâ€™re not talking about her colourful use of swear words, weâ€™re talking about the way she speaks to Chris.
For those of you watching the news intently to catch the May-bot twitching and repeating itself over and over again after malfunctioning in the heat of the General Election, we have a tiny bit of evidence that she might me a human being after all. The Prime Minister admitted to Radio 5 Live’s Emma Barnett today that she did shed a “little tear” when she learned that her bid to win a larger Conservative majority had spectacularly failed.
Kim Kardashian felt forced to explain herself after receiving a barrage of criticism for putting her four-year-old daughter North West in what looked like a corset. The assumption was made all the more inflammatory as Kardashian is well known for her advocacy of waist training in order to achieve an hour glass figure – and strangely shaped internal organs.
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".
