Look up the hashtag #twitter280, and you will see that Twitter's new character limit from 140 to 280 characters has its enthusiasts and critics, to put it mildly. Italian football club AS Roma exclaimed that it could finally list all the seasons Francesco Totti played for their club, while Indy car driver Spencer Pigot commented that the change makes him feel like he's reading a novel on the platform. Others said that they'd prefer an “edit” function more than anything else.
1. The FDA approved Kaléo's Auvi-Q, an epinephrine injector, for use in infants and small children. Auvi-Q was recalled in 2015 over concerns about dosage accuracy. 2. Pharma CEOs are open to the idea of Amazon entering the drug-distribution business if it means a more efficient supply chain.

Otsuka's Abilify got its second wind last week when US regulators cleared the off-patent pill for use with an ingestible sensor and digital ingestion-tracking system made by Proteus Digital Health. But whether Otsuka can save its otherwise commodity drug from generic oblivion may depend on how well it can demonstrate to health plans and organized providers over the next 12 months that the first so-called digital drug improves adherence.
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".
