This time last year, Wall Street was abuzz with excitement; news of the largest IPO by a US tech company since Facebook’s in 2012 had just broken, and investors were queuing up to get in on the action. Snapchat, the photo and messaging app, was to be valued at up to $25 billion – a reflection of its wild popularity among teenagers and millennials. Fifteen weeks later, the New York Stock Exchange was draped in the logo of Snapchat’s parent company Snap Inc. and investors duly piled in.
A bar in Brixton has blamed black people for violence which it claimed has contributed to London clubs being forced out of business. In a rant posted on its Facebook page, Fridge Bar said young black people should "learn to conduct themselves in a civil manner" or face being barred from music venues.
Theresa May today faced down Tory critics and insisted she would remain in her job in Number 10. The Prime Minister said she had the "full support" of her Cabinet amid fevered speculation over her political future. She said she would remain in her post and continue with Brexit negotiations next week. Her comments came after former Tory party chairman Grant Shapps said around 30 MPs, including five former Cabinet ministers, were part of the plot to oust her. This page is being updated.
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".
