These days, it’s not only fans that seem to be missing Destiny 1, but also Bungie, whose fixes for Destiny 2 involve reverting back to the original game in many ways. Every fan forum wants X or Y back from Destiny 1, and most of all the new fixes end up being pulled from the older game. So I wanted to go back for the first time since before D2’s launch to see if we’re over-nostalgizing Destiny 1, or if the game really as good as we remember.
HBO is not normally the kind of channel that does loads of spin-offs, prequels and sequels for its various acclaimed series, the concept seeming to be somewhat beneath them. But that was before Game of Thrones. Thrones is a hit on a level like HBO has never seen, and they couldn’t convince the showrunners to extend the original show indefinitely, settling on two very short seasons to close things out after eight years.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned writing for a living on the internet, it’s that after 8,000+ articles, you are bound to be wrong at some point. And while I’ve probably been wrong a decent chunk of the time about one issue or another, it’s pretty clear to me that I have not missed the mark more wildly than I did when talking about the Nintendo Switch in the run-up to its launch.
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".
