Amazon’s vision, according to its own verbiage, is to be the “Earth’s most customer centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.” That’s a lofty goal; one the online retail giant seem to be pushing toward big time.
For the second night in a row, Jimmy Kimmel used the monologue of his ABC talk show as a political platform, waging a war of words with Louisiana senator Bill Cassidy over the proposed Graham-Cassidy health-care bill. Kimmel, who back in May revealed his newborn son needed open heart surgery and will require ongoing medical care, accused Cassidy of lying about the promises in the bill, especially related to pre-existing conditions.
Joe Tuccini’s bachelor party was all fun and games until he got kicked out of Detroit’s Comerica Park Saturday night. Tuccini and 40-plus friends were at the park to see the Tigers play the White Sox -- all dressed in Tigers ballcaps, Hawaiian shirts and mustaches, ala Tom Selleck in the classic ’80s television show “Magnum, P.I.” It seems an odd choice of cosplay, especially given it was technically Star Wars night at the stadium.
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".
