Girls with naturally round faces know the real struggle of unattainable beauty standards. Everyone is always telling us that if we don’t like our round face or if we want better cheekbones, we should just work out more. Or you know, stop eating. But no matter how much I do chin workouts or apply fucktons of contour, I have low cheekbones and a round skull. I just can’t help it. In a world of Angelina Jolies and Bella Hadids, it can be hard for girls with literal pancake faces to feel pretty.
Bumble used to be our oasis. It seemed to attract a slightly higher quality of people than Tinder, forced us to think of clever(ish) opening lines outside of “heyyyy” and — most importantly — we were never at risk of accidentally hitting the stupid fucking Super Like star with our thumb while swiping on the toilet. But like all good things (pricey lip balms, open bars), it had to come to an end.
Our whole lives we’re told we’re unique. But by the time we have blossomed into adulthood, we know that’s just not true. There is, in fact, only two types of people who walk this Earth: those who prefer Moe’s and those who prefer Chipotle. Most of usÂ cringe when we hear a friend even mentionÂ the other quickly-prepared, moderately-warm Mexican food. We want to vomit when a co-worker dares bring the stench of that other place into the office.
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".
