Poor Kim Kardashian. The ultra-wealthy, mega-famous mom just wants to post cute photos of her kids, like any other normal parent—but when you have millions of social media followers, you can ignite controversy without even meaning to. This time, it's an adorable image of her baby Saint that has fans fuming. Yes, he looks just like his dad Kanye, and his sneakers, sippy cup, and outfit are all on point. So what's the issue, exactly? Well, take a good look and see if you can guess what's wrong.
Over on Reddit today, dads have been answering a very sensitive question: "What's your best 'don't tell your mother about this' moment?" Obviously, this poses the risk of mom reading the thread and putting two and two together, but for the greater good of internet amusement, we're glad they're coming clean. Honesty is the best policy, don't you think? Unless, of course, you did any of these things. Dropped the wife off at work one snowy morning. Junior is in the back seat (about 3 yrs old).
Film historians have made great sport of pinpointing Hollywood's "best" year, what with a century of material to fuss over. Viral videos, on the other hand, have been around for less than a tenth of the time feature films have, so there can be comparatively little debate about when they peaked: It was in 2007, right on the cusp of the Web 2.0 revolution, that these clips had their unrepeatable heyday.
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".
