Finally, the best season for all things entertainment is here. It's the best part of growing up: Instead of fearing September because it meant going back to school, adulting means September is transformed into a time of prestige cable dramas, Oscar bait movies, books competing for those prized spots on Best Of lists, and the first taste of awards season in the form of the Emmys.
What’s your approach to social media? "Social media can ruin a lot of things, but my career kind of started because of the internet obviously, and social media was a huge part of it and it still is. It’s a way to connect with fans... But it can really, really mess some stuff up, whether it's a relationship with a friend or a guy or whatever. Especially with any sort of fame at all, anyone can find out anything through the internet, and then completely perceive it in the wrong way.
Kaitlin Reilly, Entertainment News WriterLEAP! (in theaters August 30)I have been listening to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Cut To The Feeling" on repeat ever since it dropped on Apple Music. If Leap! is even as close to as good as this pop track is, it will be my favorite animated movie of the year. Mostly, however, I'm excited for an animated film that is a little more grounded in the real world than, say, the emoji keyboard of your iPhone.
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".
