The rapper Nicki Minaj spent the evening giving away money to select fans to pay for their education. The American rapper offered to fly fans out to her studio for a visit, or to the Billboard Music Awards, who recorded videos of them dancing to her latest single Regret In Your Tears. But instead of a flight and chance to meet the star, @cjbydesign asked Minaj, "Well you wanna pay my tuition?" For young people studying in the US, this offer was too good to be true.
Holy Week is a series of festivals that marks the biblical events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his return from the dead. While for many, Easter is a time to eat chocolate eggs and dress as cute bunnies, to devout Catholics it is the most important days of the year, pushing Christmas into second place. Holy Week celebrations across the world vary, but they all retell the story of Jesus' death – known as the Passion – and involve acts of contrition by the faithful.
Former Manchester United star Andy Cole is recovering from a kidney transplant for a long-standing health problem. A spokesperson for Manchester United told the BBC that Cole, 45, will be taking a break from his role as a club ambassador and that the Cole family had requested privacy so that he could recover from the treatment in private. He needed the transplant after being struck by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) after a viral infection in 2015.
@RobDeb I’ve always said if US comics want to grow their audience they need to be cheaper, easier for non-comic readers to read, and widely available. Instead they’re expensive, hard to read, and ghettoised in comic stores.
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".
