Carson Wentz showed the Sixers love when he tweeted out support in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons' pursuit of NBA All-Star starting spots. The Sixers returned the favor this week, sending the star Eagles quarterback a customized Sixers jersey with his name on the back. It was No. 11, which is also Wentz's number with the Eagles. In a tweet, Wentz thanked the Sixers for "hookin me up with my own jersey!"
Through the constant social media campaigning, celebrity (and Eagles) support and the Sixers organization’s all-out push to get Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons elected as All-Star starters, it’s important to remember that the fan vote is no longer the only one that matters. Embiid knows that all too well. The starters will be announced Thursday at 6 p.m. on TNT for February’s game in Los Angeles, and it’s entirely possible Embiid is left out again.
PHILADELPHIA -- J.J. Redick bent over, grabbed his ankle, pulled it upward and grimaced. The Sixers shooting guard hobbled up the sideline and back with the look of someone who didn’t want to exit this game against the Toronto Raptors, the team currently second in the Eastern Conference standings. But as Redick limped toward the Sixers bench, and grimaced some more, it was too much.
Last night was an emotional roller coaster. I'm happy people were willing to open up about their battles with depression in light of the sad Tyler Hilinski news. I need to get back to work, writing/tweeting about the Sixers. But I'm still listening if you have something to say.
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".
