In the age of Trump, every celebration of diversity counts, so we talked with Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, author of a Kim Kardashian-approved book and founder and editor-in-chief of MuslimGirl.com, about the importance of making Muslim women’s voices heard.

Most of the photos in my Instagram feed fall into the same categories. There are the selfies, the brunch pics, theÂ found objects with ironic captions, the blurry group shots intended to induce FOMO. They seem like authentic displays of real life, but we all know they’re meantÂ to enhanceÂ publicÂ opinion of the peopleÂ posting them. I say this as someone who uses Instagram for that exact purpose: it can get boring.
If you don’t have an aesthetic in this world, who are you? Any girl who is up-to-date on all the social media trends has an Instagram aesthetic they hold close to them. It draws people into their profiles and gives lurkers an idea of who the girl is and what kind of life she lives. The aesthetic isn’t just a phase. It’s a lifestyle. Supposedly. She has her favorite VSCO filters, posts pictures that match her ~true~ self, and sticks to her aesthetic like a true ride or die. You know these girls.
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".
