As you may have heard, we are in the process of raising £1,000,000 and want our readers to participate and own a part of the company. The opportunity to invest will go live on Crowdcube on Friday 21st July for an exclusive 48 hours before it is available to the public. While we want everyone to have a chance to invest, the Crowdcube round is capped at £300,000, and emails have already been pouring in.
Today’s election will determine the next few years of the UK’s political, economic and social future, as well as how it stands with the rest of Europe and the wider world. Voting began this morning at 7 am and will continue until 10 pm. My plea to you? Go vote! We in the developed world sometimes take democracy for granted, but should we? It hasn’t even been a century since the UK extended the right to vote to women, and less than two-thirds of the world enjoy some form of democracy today.
We’re excited that our investment round will be live on Crowdcube in 24 hours! As a reminder, it will only be accessible via an exclusive link we will send you tomorrow, so you are able to invest as our readers, authors and fans, on a first come, first served basis before the general public will be able to invest from Monday. You’re welcome to reply back to this email if you have any questions or would like a copy of our investment deck.
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".
