In a bar overlooking Tianamen Square, someone has just tipped me the wink that Jaguar is developing an off-roader. Madness, I think, not least because Jaguar is the J of the JLR combine, the other half of which is Land Rover. Last time I checked, they were doing pretty well selling off-roaders. Why bother?Why bother? Because the SUV market was booming, and five years after that Beijing conversation, it refuses to slow down.
We knew Tesla was revving up – if that’s the word ¬– to unveil its Semi truck. But in true mischievous Elon Musk style, the greatest automotive disruptor of the 21st century has also just dropped its new Roadster. No hoopla, no PR foreplay. Way to go.And it’s astonishing. Anyone who’s ever experienced the Ludicrous mode in the Model S P100D will know how demented its acceleration is. Well, the new Roadster is even faster.
In the pioneering days of motoring, cars were such an infernal nuisance that legislators demanded a man walked ahead while waving a red flag. Such were the perils of an automobile that could do 10mph.More than a century later, we're serenaded by the modern equivalent: the YouTuber brandishing a smartphone. Central London being one of the key global destinations for hypercars, the latest, the Bugatti Chiron has been a mobile electromagnet for the past hour in Carnaby Street.
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".
