Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn engaged in what appeared to be an awkward attempt at small talk as they left the House of Lords on Wednesday. While there was limited audio of the exchange, professional lipreader Tina Lannin was able to decipher the conversation. Exiting the Chamber following the Queen's Speech that marked the state opening of Parliament, the leaders shared a few pleasantries as they made their way to the House of Commons.
Jeremy Corbyn has been criticised for failing to bow to the Queen at the state opening of Parliament, but it appears the Labour leader was actually upholding tradition. The MP for Islington North entered the Lord's Chamber with Theresa May but was seen standing resolutely upright as those around him bowed in respect to the monarch. However it has emerged that it may in fact be the Prime Minister who breached convention.
Senior politicians have attended the scene of a terror attack targeting Muslims in London. Both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn visited the Finsbury Park Mosque to offer support to the community in the wake of the van rampage. However, reactions to their visits differed widely, with the Prime Minister being heckled by onlookers who referenced her initial delay in visiting victims of the Grenfell Tower fire. One man was heard shouting: "How come you were so quick today?
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".
