Millennials really get around. A new survey found that, by the age of 5, millennials from around the world were three times more well-traveled than their grandparents had been at the same age. The survey, conducted by European travel agency eDreams, also found that American millennials are most likely to book trips to new destinations — perhaps driven by the thirst for a killer Instagram feed.
Ernesto Feliz can’t remember the last time he went to a wedding and wasn’t a groomsman. The 34-year-old concierge from the Lower East Side has been in 22 weddings since the time he was a ring bearer at age 6 for a family friend. He comes from a large family and has a big friend group, and while he says he “love[s] being a groomsman” — “I’ve met a lot of girls through weddings,” Feliz says with a laugh — he admits that with every ceremony, he grows just a little more lonely.
A San Francisco woman endured a horrifyingly gross JetBlue flight when the passenger behind her decided to kick off his or her shoes. The barefooted brute proceeded to rest swollen, bare feet on the armrests of the seat in front. Consultant Jessie Char chronicled the gag-inducing incident on Twitter, starting with a promising photo of two empty seats next to her. Her travels took a devastating turn, as documented in her next tweet, when two feet appeared. It only got worse from there, though.
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".
