By Nathan Vicar@NathanVicar(WOMC) — Babies most of the time don’t have a refined taste for music. But this little girl named Abby has made it clear that she loves ’80s pop rock. Her father posted a video of Abby every time she hears the song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers. The video shows Abby stop what she’s doing, put a huge smile on her face and start rocking out. It’s so adorable! VIDEO
(AMP) — A little boy has learned one of life’s tough lessons: Not every toy is your friend. In a Facebook video posted Wednesday, Jessica Mags surprises her son with a not-so-friendly plush unicorn. The unicorn looks harmless with its faint smile, but once pressed on its back, the smile disappears and it turns into a sharp-toothed angry animal. Mags’ son looks excited to get the toy at first, but the excitement turned into fear once his mom showed the toy’s angry side.
By Nathan Vicar@NathanVicar(AMP) — There’s usually no rhyme or reason why corporate accounts follow certain people on Twitter. However, Kentucky Fried Chicken has a very important reason for only following 11 people when it has over 1 million followers. So who do they follow? KFC’s Twitter account follows five former Spice Girls and six men called Herb. (Source: Twitter/KFC)Do you get it?
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".
