Veronica runs her freelance writing business out of the corner table of the Starbucks closest to her house, since her roommates won’t tell her the wifi password. Dylan, who’s been temping for the last four years, spills a Rick and Morty-branded frappuccino on her backpack. Michelle does on-demand facials for GlamSquad. Amabella needs one before her big job interview to be the second personal assistant to Asahd Khaled.
You’re from a small town that feels like a nondescript Stars Hollow knock off. It’s always lightly snowing but you never get cold or wet and your hair never frizzes. You’re a florist, wedding planner, or baker and Christmas is your busiest and most important season. You have a man job, like something where you wear a blazer, that keeps you from participating in essential Christmas activities. Your mother disapproves of all your romantic and/or professional choices and she loves Christmas.
I just can't wait for summer to end. I've waxed poetic here(it feels like an eternity) about how conscious I am of my big, unruly, sweaty body in the summer heat and humidity. And now, in late August, I just wish it were over. Like Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly, I just love New York in the fall (feel free to send me a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils).What an awful summer it's been.
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".
