Ah, the ever popular term coined by our two favorite surgeons at Seattle Grace. But seriously, no term has ever described a best friend better. I have a ton of girls that I consider my best friends, naturally. However, there is only one friend I would call if I murdered someone (I haven't yet, don't worry). That friend is my person. I honestly don't know what I would do without her, like for real, I call her at least once a day because I'm in the middle of my fourth crisis of the day.
If you're reading this (it's not too late, I'm sorry I couldn't help myself), then you've probably recently been used by someone in your life. Whether it be a boy, a parent, or a friend, it stings, but what hurts more is that looking back, you let yourself be treated that way. You kept making excuses for that person. "Oh they're just busy, that's why they're ignoring me." "They didn't mean to set me up for failure like that, even though they knew the outcome." We've all been there.
Hillary Clinton's guard is down and she's laughing the way you laugh when you actually think something is really funny. It's an outright throaty laugh and it made me cry. I never thought I'd hear her sound like that again, because I'm still not ready to laugh. It's been nearly a year since deranged America elected its orange popinjay and, when I see or hear President Donald Trump, I still feel a little sick.
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".
