If you're buying more Tesla stock on Friday because of Thursday night's big electric-truck reveal, then you may be experiencing a strange form of financial déjà vu. Because if you already owned Tesla Inc.'s stock, then you had already bought into the electric truck -- just as you had already bought into the Powerwall, the electric minivan, some kind of robo-taxi business, solar roofs and, crucially, mass production of the Model 3 car.
Tesla claims the truck will have 500 miles of range and get another 400 miles in 30 minutes at planned "megachargers." These will, apparently, be solar-powered so that the truck is, effectively "running on sunlight," Musk said. And Tesla will guarantee a price of just 7 cents per kilowatt-hour for that power, in line with the current average for industrial users. Autonomous features will come as standard.
She didn't unveil a nuke-proof truck. Nor did anyone call on her to become emperor. Yet I think Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors Co., actually had a good week, if slightly less flashy than that of her counterpart at Tesla Inc., Elon Musk. A day before Musk's Thursday night electric-truck-and-nesting-sports-car reveal in an aircraft hangar in Los Angeles, Barra appeared in the slightly more mundane setting of a conference hosted by Barclays in Manhattan.
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".
