In the wake of the rampage that left 17 dead at a Florida high school, disturbing images posted by suspect Nikolas Cruz to Instagram have emerged — leaving some wondering whether the posts were warning signs of the violence to come. An orphaned 19-year-old with a troubled past and his own AR-15 rifle, Cruz was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder Thursday morning following the deadliest school shooting in the United States in five years.
The city of Los Angeles needs a new graphics designer — and from the look of the online job posting, it needs one pretty badly. A cheeky tweet from the city’s account used the much-maligned Comic Sans font and amateur MS Paint-style illustrations job posting from the city used Comic Sans and MS Paint-style illustrations to draw in potential candidates. The basic colors and shapes, as well as the poorly pasted-in city logo, helped the post rocket across social media Thursday.
President Donald Trump appeared to deny the use of a crass epithet to describe certain countries during an immigration meeting Thursday. Trump’s comments came in an oval office meeting to discuss immigration reform, in which he reportedly asked why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and ‘‘shithole countries’’ in Africa rather than places like Norway. Trump has faced multiple calls for an apology after the Washington Post first reported his comments.
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".
