The majority of buzzwords on Twitter Friday morning included some sort of a reference to hockey. #LAKvsCGY was popular after the #Flames beat the #Kings 4-3 at the Scotiabank Saddledome, Thursday night. #WorldJuniors continued to show up in social media news feeds thanks to a big win for Team Canada in the semi-final of the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship. The Canadian juniors beat the Czech Republic 7-2, Thursday. The team advanced to the gold medal final, Friday night, against Sweden.
Does it get any more Canadian than #hockey and #winter? #Flames, #Canucks, #Blackhawks and several individual players were popular mentions in social media feeds Friday morning. Calgary lost 3-2 to the San Jose #Sharks in #shootout, Thursday. The NHL wasn’t the only hockey reference online, #WorldJuniors remained among the top trends too. The Canadians are scheduled to play an outdoor game Friday, against the rival Americans. Team USA was upset Thursday night by Slovakia, 3-2.
Canada’s World Junior Hockey team blanked Slovakia 6-0 Wednesday night in Buffalo, NY; and the team and the tournament were popular mentions in Canadian social media feeds, Thursday, as a result. Extreme Cold Warning was (still) trending Thursday morning, with much of the country still trying to thaw out from bitter wind chills. Environment Canada warning for part of the week, but the thermometer still reads bitingly cold.
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".
