On a Wednesday evening in late summer, Glossier ’s downtown showroom is beginning to fill up with tourists, high school girls, mothers—a typical crowd for a weekday, says founder and CEO Emily Weiss, who often pops into the penthouse turned retail showcase for quality control. Suddenly a trembling college-age brunette named Jaden bulldozes over my exposed toes. She can’t believe she’s in the same city—let alone the same store at the same time—as Weiss.
Whether or not she intended to be a beauty icon, Patti Smith has been making waves with her mold-breaking good looks since the moment she set foot on the punk rock scene in 1974. A tall and gangly poet, playwright, and performer from New Jersey, Smith quickly took to sucker-punching crowds with her lyrically poignant and potent poetry, and disarmingly androgynous appearance—a message that rang in harmony with male-heavy acts such as Television, the Talking Heads, and the Ramones.
I'm standing in line to pay for my manicure and pedicure at Haven Spa , the only salon I've stayed loyal to in my decade-long romp in New York City, when the woman behind the counter asks, "Do you want to try our Bitch Massage?" There was a time in my life when I would have taken that phrase as more of a statement than a question, but it's 2016 now, a time when divas are hustlers and a bitch is a boss. Plus, I just hosted my fiancé's family for the holidays.
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".
