Bobby Briggs has aged very well. In the original Twin Peaks, it was very hard to like the character, a whiny, violent, coke-dealing teen—but in Showtime’s revival, he’s reformed in the best way possible. Who knows if it’s Dana Ashbrook’s dadly-looking salt and pepper hair, his sterner face, or the fact that this rebellious teen grew up to be a cop—but either way, Bobby Briggs has gotten a major character upgrade.
Today in headlines that shouldn’t be newsworthy but, sadly, are anyway: Jodie Whittaker, the newly cast thirteenth Doctor Who, will reportedly earn just as much during her turn as the Time Lord on the BBC as twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi did. The news comes just after the BBC’s highest earners were revealed, which led to the (again, unsurprising) realization that the network’s top five male earners were raking in far more than their female counterparts.
Yeah, yeah, we know: Sean Spicer’s resignation from his post as White House press secretary is actually a promotion out of the swamp. The seemingly endless volley of jokes made at Spicer’s expense during his brief tenure certainly didn’t do him any favors, and as he bids his office adieu, we’re guessing Spicer is looking forward, maybe, to having a less prominent place in the spotlight—not to mention comedians' crosshairs.
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".
