It's always fun to look back at the all of the live coverage over the past year and the extreme weather I've been "lucky" enough to cover. And for the first time in my 25-year career at The Weather Channel, I started and ended 2016 covering the same story: a sub-zero Minnesota Vikings tailgate.
This officer from @ShreveportPD "ice skated" to the scene of one of many accidents following a flash freeze and 2-3" of snow. Temps stay in the 20s today so no melting. Please stay off these roads! https://t.co/6sv1tU5LGT
First 1" snowfall in Shreveport in almost 7 years! 2" so far at 24° and a wind chill of 11°. Highs today stay in the 20s so roads stay icy and dangerous into Wed. I-49 shut down in SHV as well as I-220 in Caddo/Bossier Parishes. https://t.co/KkZubeoHps
Ominous sky over Shreveport (but no storms) as the cold front moves through NW LA. Rain goes to #snow after midnight with 1-3". Most schools are closed on Tuesday...a rare snow day this far south https://t.co/jznMkj6yHB
Although it's in the low 60s in Shreveport, in a matter of hours temps will crash into the 20s with a rare snowfall of 1-3". The last time an inch fell here was 2/4/2011. Watches/Warnings/Advisories eastern half of U.S. for snow/ice & wind chills to -45° with this Arctic plunge. https://t.co/4U3Vo2IOHD
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".
