You may have noticed that I have been missing for a couple of years from the internet.Â There were a few good reasons that crossed my desk, the first being that I came “this” close to buying the ranch (pushing up daisies, meeting my maker, kicking the bucket).Â Even the surgeon didn’t believe I would pull through. That was the short story–here’s the long version.Â WARNING:Â Fasten your seatbelts.Â This is a long one, but intense in places.
@iammrvandy Huge thanks for providing us with decades of fun and laughter, from The Dick Van Dyke Show ('60s) to Diagnosis Murder ('90s), which I am just watching now. I love your smile and your kindness. You excel! "hugs* 😊
@KensingtonRoyal I remember when Princess Diana was killed. I was grief-stricken at the loss to me & the world. I am glad that the 2 Princes and their families have been so generous in sharing their joy at Diana's charitable works & her gifts & kindness to the world. It quite lifts up my spirit.
@KensingtonRoyal What a great family! Don't let little squabbles between any two or more members spoil all this precious love, The four of you (and soon to be five) offer the picture of a loving family to role model to people yearning for what you have. I've been a fan since Will was a baby! https://t.co/TXfIOqmQXQ
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".
