And those are the professionals. The amateurs were somewhat less kind. So that’s how we found ourselves, Veena Sud and I, having dinner on Valentine’s Day in a hotel in , where she was working on an episode for “The Killing,” Season 2. A publicist from AMC was also seated at our table, giving the proceedings the air of a slightly hostile Senate subcommittee hearing.
“I am considering Tweeting,” Leyner announced recently, to a table of friends, over dinner in the West Village, as though Tweeting is an activity he has been encouraged to pursue and is eager to master, even if he’s not quite sure yet what it entails. He should be a natural — it’s hard to imagine another writer better equipped to spit out short, artfully crafted, vaguely aphoristic and absurdo-delightful nuggets of text.
This month, ZoeÂ KazanÂ â€”Â whoâ€™s already starred this year in The Big Sick with Kumail Nanjiani, as well as making an appearance on HBOâ€™s The Deuce â€”Â accomplished a personal first: She wrote aÂ well-receivedÂ post-apocalyptic play, After the Blast, that stars Cristin Milioti and, not incidentally, a surprisingly adorable, partially fur-covered robot named Arthur.
I've thought about the 2001 GW Bush "Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over" one at least 6x a year ever since, because it was, it really was, they were right https://t.co/vN8idzh9pIhttps://t.co/IDNg7KQAnf
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".
