J.K. Rowling Is Celebrating Harry Potter's 20th Anniversary With The InternetPssst. Want to feel old? Yeah? Wait, no? Well too bad. It's been 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was released. That's right. Author J.K. Rowling tweeted about the milestone and even included the special hashtag Twitter made in honor of the day that kicked off a social phenomenon. Twitter isn't the only social media service that's giving props to Potter -- Facebook has a cool little Easter egg as well.
Justin Trudeau Marching In Toronto's Pride Parade Is Simply The BestWhen it comes to hot, good-guy politicians, it doesn't get any more hot or good than Justin Trudeau. The man's a former pro-athlete, is a nerd at heart (with a love for Star Wars), and has a refreshing, open-door policy with his constituents. He has a charming smile that's so genuine it's disarming, and he doesn't let his "I love everyone" approach get in the way of being a tough guy.
This Ugly Fish Has Been Best Friends With A Scuba Diver For 25 YearsMaybe it's because deep down inside, we all really want to see everybody get along. I mean, why else would we get all misty-eyed when a wolf ends up taking care of a lost baby instead of tearing them to shreds? Whatever the reason, it's awesome to witness. Especially when the animals aren't really known for being cuddly or affectionate.
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".
