Over the years companies, governments, and those in-between have created some major public relations gaffs by not addressing bad situations in time, hoping the publicity would die soon.Recently McDonald’s decided to run a twitter campaign that sparked a storm on social media.They pulled the stunt immediately and it was over … they dealt with the situation as soon as they were aware of problems.When governments run afoul of voters it happens sometimes because they have too many people saying...
‘In these days of austerity there can be no freeloaders’We might not all want to admit it but I suspect that many of us have significant volumes of unstructured data running wild in our respective organisation. The funny thing is that it has been our own successful ongoing move away from paper storage towards digital storage that has turned this problem into a problem at all.
Exercise your democratic right and get out to vote on May 9. This provincial election is becoming quite interesting now that the writ dropped on Tuesday. Christy Clark is campaigning hard and one of her main promises is about jobs. The head honcho for the New Democrats is John Horgan and he is promising a $10 daycare program and he does not want the pipeline to go through, and said he would shut down Site C dam.
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".
