Jakarta: Just a few weeks ago she was a shy, bookish high school student from a small town in the Indonesian province of East Java who liked to raid her local library and pull books randomly from the shelves. But last week the head-scarf-wearing student, Asa Firda Inayah, also known as Afi, 18, was standing on the stage of Rosi, a prominent national talk show, reciting one of her many famous Facebook posts on the importance of pluralism, as inspirational violin music played in the background.
Ms. Asa’s sudden fame led to a meeting last week with President Joko Widodo and a speaking engagement at a prestigious university. She also appeared on numerous news and talk show programs to explain the importance of religious tolerance. But there was a flip side to the fame: Islamic hard-liners reportedly began calling her home in the middle of the night, threatening to kill her. She is now being protected by a local moderate Muslim militia.
“It’s unlikely the police did this without direction from the president,” said Slamet Maarif, a spokesman for the Islamic Defenders Front. “The police are just a tool.”He added that Mr. Rizieq and the woman, Firza Husein, had not had an affair. Mr. Rizieq fled to Saudi Arabia after the police summoned him to testify as a witness in the pornography case. On Monday, the police said he was now wanted as a suspect, rather than a witness, effectively announcing that they would charge him with a crime.
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".
