In case you somehow missed it (unlikely), Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift dated in 2010. In fact, she reportedly wrote "All Too Well" about him. And since that precious time, things have been very weirdâ€”by which we mean Gyllenhaal has refused to answer questions about his ex, with one reporter saying things got "awkwardly tense" when he tried to brooch the subject.
Ben Affleck might not have walked the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards, but the actor was in attendance playing a supporting role for his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus-who's a producer on Saturday Night Live. (FYI, she won for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.) Ben and Lindsay seemed to want to keep things pretty low key-but he was spotted backstage with her by an eagle-eyed fan who happened to have a cell phone on hand. What a guy.
From the moment she signed onto Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson presumably knew she was opening herself up to judgement. After all, we still have a long way to go in terms of sex positivity in this country, and the movie deals with some taboo subjects in a very explicit way. More to the point, the films have thrust Johnson into the spotlight, a place where people seem fond of judging. And she isn't into it. "It's like an incessant mosquito noise," she said during a recent interview. "Very weird.
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".
