Boy howdy are we exhausted from the weeklong schlep of E3, but it was totally worth it. Essentially since all the major players emerged with news that made us want to sock away cash so we can splurge when everything comes out—we’re especially looking at you Nintendo.
In today’s Keanews, we have learned that John Wick will be getting its own TV show, tentatively titled The Continental, after Wick’s favorite hotel chain and home away from home. Sounds like it will be an HGTV classic! Lionsgate has been developing the project with the franchise’s director Chad Stahelski and his writing partner Derek Kolstad who spoke with Indiewire about the television prequel to the John Wick film universe.
While the world is keeping their eyes glued to Twitter for any bit of information about James Comey’s hearing tomorrow, we are just trying to keep our gosh darn heads on straight and get through the week. And what better way to do that then by assembling a Nerdist News Talks Back quorum to talk about everything from apparently lukewarm The Mummy reviews, fanciful new photos ofÂ Marry Poppins, and anÂ exceptionally uncomfortable clip of Jerry Seinfeld refusing a hug from Kesha : ( ?
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".
