Families in a neighborhood in Colorado Springs are reportedly being "terrorized" by a jogger who keeps pausing her workout to squat and poop in broad daylight, according to the Gazette in Colorado Springs. For real. Police are on the hunt for this athleisure-sporting woman dubbed "the Mad Pooper" after witnesses have confirmed seeing her drop trou and drop a number two in broad daylight. Several times.
A start-up founded by two ex-Google employees drew a heck-load of criticism on Wednesday morning for angling to replace the mom and pop corner stores (AKA Delis or bodegas) that are neighborhood staples with an app-controlled vending machine that can monitor what people take (and reportedly use its AI robot magic to anticipate what people will need.) They even called it Bodega and, to add insult to injury, there's a cat as their logo.
Late Monday night, Internet lurkers and Weird Politics Twitter got tipped off to a NSFW video in Sen. Ted Cruz's "likes" — a low-quality video shared from an account called "Sexuall Posts" [sic]. The two minute video stayed visible in that column of his verified page for about an hour before it was unliked, but it was still more than long enough for the junior senator from Texas to get thoroughly roasted over the slip-up.
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".
