There's nothing more glamorous or talked about than awards season. Whether you're a TV, movies, or music fan, there's something for everyone to watch... and tweet about. The Emmy Awards are perfect for every Netflix or cable television fan, and the 2017 Emmy Aways red carpet is full of the biggest stars from the shows that all of us are spending hours and hours watching during our weekends. This year there's a particularly exciting mix of nominees and stars.
In case you haven't already heard, Melania Trump just wore sky-high stilettos to visit parts of Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey — and the internet has a lot to say about it. Yes, wearing heels to a disaster zone is ridiculous. That much is common sense. At best, the shoes are simply very, very impractical for the situation. At worst, it's a reflection of the complacency of her husband's administration in the face of a national emergency. In any case, it's not great.
The MTV Video Music Awards have basically been ruled by Miley Cyrus performances and appearances in recent year's. Cyrus makes statements, whether that's by hosting the show itself, wearing something jaw-dropping on the red carpet, or performing memorable songs (or all three). At the 2017 MTV VMAs this year, Cyrus was accompanied on stage by her Baddie Gang — AKA a group of older people dancing alongside her.
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".
