Nigel Farage was unsurprisingly furious at the result of last night’s Brexit vote - but the former Ukip leader’s Twitter strop landed him in a rather embarrassing position. On Wednesday evening, 309 MPs voted in favour of putting into law that MPs would get a meaningful vote on the Brexit deal agreed with Brussels. Just 305 MPs sided with the government, giving the rebels victory and with it, Theresa May’s first Parliamentary defeat as prime minister.
The Daily Express ran a “crusade” to get us out of the European Union, hit out at “arrogant Remainers” and demanded Britain “sever ties with Brussels NOW”. But the tabloid has suddenly done a volte-face, tweeting a “SHOCK” warning that Brexit might actually be bad. Many were shocked when it appeared to have had something of an epiphany.
As temperatures plunge to record lows and with snow still fresh on ground, rough sleepers are at risk far more than during the rest of the year. The freezing weather leaves those who have nowhere warm to stay at best extremely uncomfortable, and at worst in a genuinely life-threatening situation, at risk from exposure and hypothermia. Rough sleepers HuffPost UK spoke to this week during the sub-zero temperatures said they knew of somebody who had died as a result of extreme weather conditions.
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".
