The truth is out there… on Twitter, to be specific, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson celebrating the reprisal of their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as production begins on Season 11 of The X-Files. Earlier this year, we learned that our favourite sci-fi investigators were suiting up to return to their basement office once more, as FOX ordered a new batch of X-Files episodes for the 2017-2018 television season.
When FOX shared a sneak peek of the upcoming season of Gotham at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month, fans were teased over the prospect of new villains and new secrets unfurling faster than the caped crusader’s wings. With the threat-level reaching new heights, Gotham’s heroes will need to band together to fight against the most depraved and deranged villains of the crime-ridden city, but only doom awaits the series’ burgeoning dark knight.
Viewers of Late Night with Seth Meyers were transported to a place both wonderful and strange when they tuned in this week, as the cast and crew vacated Studio 8-G and rocked up to Twin Peaks’ Red Room. If you have ever wondered what would transpire if David Lynch were to direct a late night television show, then you can wonder no more, as Seth and his team seemingly stumbled upon Glastonbury Grove during their recent night-time excursion.
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".
