I am sitting on a bench on Main Street in Highlands, and nobody knows me. Main Street is a wide patch of asphalt with slanted parking spaces on either side of both lanes. There are brick sidewalks. There are storefronts. Actual, functioning storefronts. And everywhere, there are people. Women in flats. Men in jackets. They are dressed in Aspen chic. Some men smoke cigars. Couples dart out from behind cars to cross the street. The hair is styled. The sunglasses look sharp. The shopping bags are full.
Byron Mullens is a 7-foot-tall man with a Twitter account. Sometimes he tweets about equestrian education. Sometimes he tweets about stringed instruments. Sometimes he tweets about his knee. About that last one. Mullens and guard Kemba Walker were speaking at an elementary school Thursday as part of the Cats Care Day of Service. Their message: stay in school. Mullens left Ohio State after his freshman year. Walker declared for the NBA draft after his junior year at UConn.
Hello! Before I was a kindly Our State magazine writer, I was an occasional TV station blogger. In 2008, after Hurricanes Gustav and Ike came ashore near Houston, shut down refineries on the Gulf Coast, and stopped the flow of gasoline into the Colonial Pipeline that supplies most of central North Carolina, I got snarky.
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".
