Despite grossing almost $100 million in 4 days, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is arguably the most polarizing film of the franchise to date. Many fans are pissed, but it’s impossible to ascribe their (let’s face it: unjustified) anger to any one specific cause; they are mad because the film is “too progressive” (too many minorities and strong female characters! ), the jokes too on the nose, the main characters’ journeys too ambiguous. Certainly, director Rian Johnson took many risks.
2017 has been THE WORST! I don't have to tell you, you've lived through it. In between Trump's first full year as president, one worst-ever mass shooting stacked on top of another, natural disasters destroying our cities, and every powerful man in Hollywood being outed as a pervert, there's been little good.
In 2017, every company needs to be on top of social media, intent on pumping out jokes even millennials can appreciate. Dictionaries are no exception. Dictionary.com recently announced it’s word of the year on Twitter, and it is…*drumroll*…”complicit.” The online dictionary announced the decision in a tweet, writing: “We’re so excited to announce that the Word of the Year is covfefe! JUST KIDDING! But it is complicit.”We're so excited to announce that the Word of the Year is covfefe! JUST KIDDING!
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".
