There's a barrier to entry in tech. It starts with a complicated login to a computer, continues when you start using a new phone like the Apple iPhone X with it's swipe-up-to-go-home user interface paradigm shift, and even filters down into cars when someone wants to sync a new phone over Bluetooth. None of those activities are difficult for those who are familiar with tech.
Just what the world needs, another low-end laptop that doesn't quite have the chops to run legitimate apps like Photoshop, the graphics prowess for real action games, or do any editing or video work.
Last year Twitter took steps to clamp down on tweets featuring non-consensual explicit sexual images and videos, but experts say that the platform still needs to tackle the issue of porn links. While Twitter, for the most part is a vast collection of pithy 280-character sentiments, you may have clicked a link or two that showed an explicit image. It’s surprising because Twitter is mostly meant for everyday folks -- and kids, who can sign up at age 13.
Is this the help desk? Weird issue. One email account I have is 90% spam but forwards to my main email. I rarely get the 10% that are actually helpful unless I search in spam. Any ideas on how to avoid that?
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
