T stands for Trade. T stands for Technology. T stands for Terror. T stands for Twitter. Whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Washington summit with President Donald Trump is a success or not depends on which of these Ts you are focusing on. From all indications, there has been forward movement between the two leaders in tackling terrorism and celebrating a shared love of social media conquests (Add a shared dislike for mainstream media).
When the pennies are really counted after President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi hold talks this week, would India gain or lose pounds? Er, make that US dollars! Whatever the currency, there is a case to measure the outcome of Modi's landmark US visit carefully, because the atmospherics and body language suggest unusual warmth but final outcomes may not necessarily go India's way. It all depends on which headlines you notice -- and how they all come together in the final analysis.
I have been feeling strangely nostalgic as India gets to implement the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in its biggest bang in economic reform since 1991, when the Congress-led government under Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao launched its liberalisation process with a two-step devaluation of the rupee on 1 July.
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".
