After seven seasons of twists, turns, and infuriating dead-ends, Pretty Little Liars fans will finally say goodbye to the LiArs during next week's series finale. I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to find out the identity of AD and leave Rosewood behind forever. Oh wait, we may NOT be leaving Rosewood behind forever? Showrunner I. Marlene King recently teased a Pretty Little Liars spin-off, revealing that it's "definitely" a possibility sometime in the near future.
Adam West, the star of the 1960s television series Batman, has passed away at 88. The actor's reps confirmed to Variety that he died Friday night in Los Angeles after a brief battle with Leukemia. The family released a short statement following the actor's passing:“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero."
***MAJOR SPOILERS ahead! But we probably didn't have to tell you that. Wonder Woman, the latest superhero smash from DC, is in theaters right now. Fans love it, critics love it, and tons of famous people do, too. (Lupita Nyong'o we see you.) The film, directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins), is also being celebrated for its smart and refreshing portrayal of female empowerment. Seriously, raise your hand if you teared up watching Diana triumphantly storm the frontline and liberate a small German town?
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".
