Wikipedia have called YouTube out after the video platform announced they would begin putting links to articles from the online encyclopaedia underneath videos to fight conspiracy theories, but failed to notify Wikipedia first. This week, YouTube announced that they would begin putting links to relevant Wikipedia articles underneath videos identified as potential conspiracy theory content, to combat the spread of fake news.
A YouTuber has been jailed after she shot her boyfriend deaduring a YouTube prank gone wrong, the Star Tribune reports. On June 26th 2017, 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz asked girlfriend Monalisa Perez to shoot him from just 30cm away, believing that a thick book he was holding in front of him would stop the bullet. The book, which was 1.5 inches thick, was unable to stop the bullet and fatally wounded Ruiz.
He tried it. KSI was attacked while waiting to buy lunch during his recent trip to the US. The YouTuber, who flew to the states to train with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and meet with rival Logan Paul, was waiting for food at a branch of In'n'Out when an apparent fan ran up and sucker punched him - and it was all captured on film. However, the assailant was no match for KSI, who was able to fend off the worst of the attack.
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".
