It’s safe to say it has been *quite* a week for the Star Wars universe. Three days ago, Chris Miller and Phil Lord, directors of the upcoming untitled Han Solo film — which has been filming for four months — were fired after facing creative differences with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. Yesterday, Lucasfilm announced that A Beautiful Mind director Ron Howard would be taking over direction for the project — with production set to resume next month after a brief hiatus.
In case you’ve been living off the grid in Essos for the last 24 hours, HBO released a new trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7, alongside a dozen new character posters and THIS. SEASON. LOOKS. EPIC. Based on the new trailer, we’re going to be reacquainted with old characters (Beric Dondarrion and a flaming sword!! ), and there’s going to be war and (potentially) a Stark sibling reunion. And there’s one other big thing that has us freaking out.
Yesterday, Game of Thrones interrupted the Summer Solstice to tell us that winter is HERE — releasing a brand new trailer and a dozen character posters — and let me tell you, there’s a *lot* to unpack, especially where the Stark family is concerned. With all the talk of war and White Walkers and the surprise return of old characters — oh HEY, Beric Dondarrion and your flaming sword — we nearly missed the sneaky details that seem to imply that a STARK FAMILY REUNION is in store.
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".
