The price of Bitcoin has recovered after a turbulent few days for cryptocurrencies. Its value plunged below $10,000 (£7,187) earlier this week - just 50 per cent of its high in December - but rallied on Thursday. By Friday morning, Bitcoin was trading above $11,000 (£7,900) again. However, the cryptocurrency's volatility appears likely to continue.
The value of Bitcoin fell by more than 50 per cent in the space of just a month after its worst two-day performance in three years. Amid investor fears over new regulatory measures around the world, the cryptocurrency plunged to $9,500, after hitting highs of almost $20,000 just weeks earlier. The fall in price came as governments – including those in China, South Korea and Russia – toughened their language on the regulation of digital currencies.
Ben Bradley, the MP for Mansfield, was given the role of Tory vice-chairman for youth by Theresa May last week. But the 28-year-old has faced criticism for comments he has made in blog posts in the past, including one suggesting benefit claimants should have vasectomies. During the riots which hit London and other UK cities in 2011, The Times reported that Mr Bradley wrote: “We need to come down hard on these morons before somebody gets killed!
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".
