Before insanely good graphics and award-winning storylines became the video game norm, many of us grew up playing iconic games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Spyro and Crash Bandicoot. Now many of these franchises have received updates over the years, most recently being Crash, who was given a spruce up for the PS4 release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
More than once in our lives, we've all uttered those fateful words, "I'm going for a quiet drink, I won't be back late." Only to find ourselves hours later on a night bus having been at the pub 'til closing, oh and it's a Wednesday. Well now one man has set the new standard for quiet nights turned wild when he texted his girlfriend to let her know he was going on a mini break to Ibiza.
Now that DC fans are finally coming around to the idea of "Batfleck," the hype continues to build for Justice League which will be hit cinemas this November. With teasers for the film featuring first glimpses of characters like Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg, the film has also promised to include more of Wonder Woman's backstory on Themyscira. Now the new and improved Batmobile has been unveiled at Comic Con and it looks pretty epic.
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".
