How the heck did we get here? We were having such a nice time not thinking about Nintendo characterâ€™s sex lives, and Nintendo themselves shatter that by releasing a picture of Luigiâ€™sâ€¦ahem, unmentionables. Now why would they do this? My best guess is because itâ€™s Nintendo has caught on that their core audience has grown up. In case youâ€™ve been lucky enough to sleep through it, Nintendo released a picture of Luigi striking a pose with a tennis racket forÂ Mario Tennis Aces.
When you get deep enough into Reddit, you inevitably stumble across something you didn’t know existed — or could exist. Case in point: r/shoplifting, an active subreddit where Redditors talk about exactly what the name suggests. At over 80,000 subscribers, it’s a relatively large community, and they aren’t shy about their intentions. The subreddit’s raison d’être is to talk about stealing stuff, ways of stealing stuff, and places to go where you may most easily steal stuff.
Trekkies everywhere, yIlop! Duolingo today releases its full Klingon language course, so you can now grunt and spit in the tongueÂ Star Trekâ€˜s famously warlike alien species. The course, which was created by a team of team of volunteers, has been in development for years. The first announcement for it surfaced in 2015.
With great regret, I’m cancelling tonight’s planned Assassin’s Creed stream on account of how my voice appears to have been swapped with that of a chain smoking zombie. You’ll therefore be spared the sight of me accruing a mountain of snotty tissues on my chest.
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".
