A Russian online troll farm is exposed by a disgruntled former employee: “You may think of yourself as a hero but in reality you’re just a little son of a bitch;” A Ukrainian "Facebook warrior" sources everything from fuel to fruit through social networks: "It's all about networks...People always know other people who can provide what we need;" Islamic State militants in Raqqa recruit a French convert to their cause over WhatsApp and Viber: "Don't believe the newspapers—here all Muslims live...
Should the world be worried when two of its most notorious heads of state, both nuclear powers, are compared to children squabbling in a kindergarten by the foreign minister of another global power famed for its own belligerent proclivities? Well, folks, that's exactly what happened after President Donald Trump taunted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “madman” and repeated an earlier “rocket man” jibe in his debut UN General Assembly speech Tuesday.
Erections are a funny business. They’re also big business: the global market for erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs was valued at over $4.39 billion in 2014. But they’re not usually political—except when U.S. servicemen are involved. After President Donald Trump announced in a series of tweets Wednesday that “the United States Government will not accept or allow…Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military” the backlash was as predictable as it was messy.

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".
