In Friday's shocking Coronation Street David Platt was sexually assaulted by his friend Josh Tucker after a night out. And this week David desperately tries to cleanse himself after his ordeal, shoving his clothes into the bin. But then the distraught dad is absolutely floored to see Josh chatting with his mum Gail. He seeks solace from his father Martin, who we haven't seen for 12 years and is now living in Liverpool with pregnant partner Robyn.
It's all set to be another week of drama on the Coronation Street cobbles - with a link made to our fair city as well. Last Friday, Corrie fans were left distraught as they watched scenes depicting the sexual assault of David Platt. Josh Tucker was seen plying David with alcohol before slipping GHB into his drink. The sociopathic mechanic then led him to his house and began to sexually assault a paralytic David on the sofa. Josh was then seen leading a barely-conscious David to his bedroom.
If the lounge walls on Coronation Street had eyes and ears, imagine the stories they would have to tell. Heart-breaking and hilarious events have unfolded in these famous front rooms and if you looked close enough you might still be able to see the marks from Deirdre’s trifle throwing episode. But it hasn’t gone unnoticed that some of the homes in the long-running Weatherfield based soap are in need of a serious revamp with “dumpy decor” and some seriously loud migraine-inducing patterns.
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".
