After only five years in existence, Twitter has become an essential part of fashion media. Not necessarily the most literate or informative part, but certainly one of the most fun. Thanks to its speed and format, fashion Twitters have become the perfect place for backbiting, seething, lusting, loving, dissing, and dishing. Along the way, we've noticed most accounts fall into one of ten or so styles, and we've wrapped them up with a bow just for you.
"You can play golf like this with your hands behind your back. Go for it man, do it," saidat the Golden Globes , making a crude swinging motion that left no doubt as to what would serve as the club. And, as anyone who has seen Shame can attest, Fassbender'sis, uh, hard evidence that Clooney wasn't lying. Need more proof? Check out this smokeshow's arrival at last night's Late Show with David Letterman (watch the video here , for Dave's many, many awkward references to the elephant in the room).
There's obviously a big "British" moment happening right now in the U.S. Do you consider yourself a part of it? "The thing I adore most about the U.S. is that it's filled with people from all over the world — there's so much diversity. But, saying that, when a bit homesick, I do love nothing more than hanging out with my Brit friends, doing Brit things like going to the pub or eating baked beans at Tea & Sympathy...Heaven."
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".
