Recently, two topics that one may never think of in tandem have crossed paths: Hakeem “Chamillionaire” Seriki and DACA. The rapper, best known for his 2005 hit, “Ridin’” may have been laying low for the past 13 years in terms of music, but he’s still active in other circles. He’s been navigating his way through the tech industry, saying very little while working on his plan to get wealthy, not rich, as he shared with Noisey last year.
The belief that Lil Uzi Vert worships the devil will not let up this year, but the 23-year-old rapper deflects every accusation with humor or no answer at all. The controversy existed but wasn’t really commented on until Uzi dropped $220k on a chain with an iced out portrait of Marilyn Manson, who he’s repeatedly expressed admiration for. It’s deeper than that for fans and critics, though. They wondered what it all meant, since Manson is a professed Satanist, himself.
It’s hard to disregard Trump’s unorthodox comments about Haiti and migration when he continues to add fuel to the fire. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) just removed three countries from its temporary visa list and Haiti is one of them, TIME reports. The DHS’ decision to remove Haiti from the list is uncanny as they’ve maintained Temporary Protected Status since their 2010 earthquake and the decision followed Trump’s “sh*thole countries” comment.
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".
