No social platform is more consumed by drama than YouTube and for fans looking to keep up with every last Logan Paul cry for help, there's only one destination: DramaAlert. Since launching in 2014, DramaAlert has become the premiere source of breaking news on YouTubers, social media stars, and influencers. The channel has racked up well over a half-billion views and more than 3.2 million subscribers in the process.
On Tuesday YouTube rolled out a giant shift to the platform that alienated tens of thousands of creators and could forever transform what it means to be a YouTuber. Previously, in order to monetize their videos and become inducted into what is known as YouTube's Partner Program, creators had to have a total of 10,000 total hours of watch time throughout the entire lifetime of their channel. This sounds high but was relatively easy to meet for tens if not hundreds of thousands of creators.
Sophia the robot is supposed to be one of the most advanced artificially intelligent beings on the planet. She is the first robot to receive citizenship from a country, Saudi Arabia, and she made headlines last year when she claimed that she wanted to "destroy all humans." But when I meet Sophia early in the morning at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas during this year's CES, she could barely speak a coherent sentence. The things Sophia did say were mostly vague and philosophical.
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".
