Taylor Swift dropped her long-awaited sixth studio album on Friday at midnight, and the internet immediately started burning down (if such an entity can burn down...). "Repuation," yes, misspelled, started trending on Twitter instead of Reputation, and the album wasn't even available on Apple Music or Spotify to stream. Yeah, to say sh*t hit the fan would be an understatement.
In today's edition of "Sh*t women didn't know they needed but are ever so *lucky* to have," Rolling Stone reported that Keith Urban released a song called "Female" in response to the growing number of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault. My first thought on this was, who in the hell still refers to women as "females" in 2017, outside of biology professors talking about mating rituals? But my second thought was no, thanks, I'm OK, Keith.
Police are saying at least 50 people are dead and more than 200 are injured in what people are calling the deadliest shooting in United States' history on the Las Vegas strip Sunday night, according to CNN. Trump's statement on the Las Vegas shooting was swift on Monday morning, and came via Twitter as usual. Trump's response to the shooting will be critical for many people given the scale of it.
@sikntyrd54 Yes, but you are an HR director, & someone involved in the investigation. If one of those women came to me I would offer support. Though if someone tells you they've been inappropriately treated I doubt you respond to them with "I don't believe you." Or I hope you don't.
@ejdickson@morninggloria Yep & you're right re: Conor. One of my "solutions" in "gray" situations is the semi-unpopular one that we should open dialogue between the accuser and accused. We don't foster that in a safe way (& thus accusers can turn to outing). But that's part of a much longer discussion :)
@morninggloria 2/ The Roy Moore apologist idea that if we give an accuser an inch by believing her, she'll take 3 miles in retribution/punishment, is fought not by refusing to believe her or acknowledge her as a survivor, but by having these hard discussions. Important read. #MeToo
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".
