The Twitter accounts of two former Fox News hosts were hijacked on Tuesday by somebody or somebodies who filled their feeds with propaganda supporting Turkey’s controversial president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The accounts, which belong to Eric Bolling and Greta Van Susteren, were restored within a few hours, but not before alert Twitter users grabbed screen captures. It appears that pro Turkish President hackers have taken over Greta Van Susteren’s Twitter account.
A false alarm about a ballistic missile; a panic-stricken populace running for cover; the governor and the FCC chief dissing your agency’s lack of safeguards or process controls; and just to add a dash of ludicrous to the unsavory dish that is this week, a conspiracy theory about how these “accidental” missile alerts aren’t really accidents at all. Wow. Could things possibly get any worse for the people over at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HI-EMA)? Why, yes!
A year ago, LeakedSource – a site that sold access to credentials stolen in data breaches – suddenly blinked out of sight, reportedly after the FBI raided it and seized its servers. On Monday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) announced that a man who was allegedly the site’s sole operator appeared in a Toronto court that day.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
