Neil deGrasse Tyson’s official job may be as the world’s most recognizable astrophysicist, director of the Hayden Planetarium, and host of the series Star Talk. But in recent years he’s made another name for himself among pop culture junkies as science-minded nitpicker of blockbusters and television. His use of Twitter to poke holes in the (mostly space-related) science of popular entertainment stretches at least as far back as Gravity in 2013.
This post contains frank discussion of Outlander Season 3, Episode 3, “All Debts Paid.” If you’ve not yet watched the latest episode of Starz’s time-traveling Scottish romance, now is the time to leave. Most actors working in television these days would kill to have one morally complex death on a well-watched, well-regarded series like Outlander. But Tobias Menzies got to have two. The actor stole the show in the Season 3 premiere.
After three movies and one TV series without them, the original Terminator dream team is reuniting for an as-yet-untitled sixth installment in the franchise. James Cameron announced at a private event Tuesday night that the original Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton, will join Arnold Schwarzenegger for the next chapter in the Skynet saga currently scheduled to premiere in 2019.
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".
