This one took me about 20-30 minutes to figure out today and required stringing together some SO answers, so I’m putting what I learned here for future reference.
The scenario: searching if 1 of multiple strings exists in a longer string. In this case, some possible Twitter clients in the
source field of a tweet object.
these = ['Twitter Web Client', 'Hootsuite'] desktop = [1 if any(x in item for x in these) else 0 for item in data['source']]
The loop version of the code is
these = ['Twitter Web Client', 'Hootsuite'] ugh =  for item in data['source']: if any(x in item for x in these): ugh.append(1) else: ugh.append(0)
