After American luge athlete Emily Sweeney had a frightening crash on Tuesday at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games, those watching the Olympics are probably wondering whether luge is particularly dangerous. Luge, like all sports, can be risky, though PyeongChang's track has an especially tricky curve that, while manageable, certainly could add to the already substantial risk athletes take when they compete in the luge event. Luge, like many other sports, comes with inherent hazards.
On Tuesday evening, a Twitter user replied to an innocuous post about a mosquito emoji made by a former first daughter. The reply included an unrelated meme claiming that Hillary Clinton once told Seventeen magazine that she would be disappointed if her daughter chose to marry a black man (this information is false). In response, Chelsea Clinton took the Twitter troll to task for spreading the fake meme, calling him out on his factual inaccuracies — in the classiest way possible, of course.
The pairs figure skating short program at the PyeongChang Olympics kicked off on Wednesday morning (local time). As people around the world watched skaters compete on Valentine's Day in South Korea, some may have noticed that the song from Alexa Scimeca & Chris Knierim’s 2018 Olympics short program routine is incredibly romantic. The married couple skated to Moulin Rouge's "Come What May," mesmerizing audiences — and securing a spot in the final.
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".
