On Thursday night, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, in his typical dramatic way, unveiled the company’s much-anticipated electric 18-wheeler trucks. The trucks—which drew comparisons to Star Wars stormtroopers—are sleek in white and silver with LED headlights. Naturally there are unique design choices like a drivers seat that sits in the middle of the cab and a front trunk where an engine would normally be. Autopilot will come standard on every truck, says Musk.
Following the unveiling of its semi-trailer trucks last night, Tesla debuted a brand-new Roadster—the company’s original sport car. In a moment of theatrics, the car jetted out of the back of one of the semis onto the main floor. CEO Elon Musk boasts that the four-seat Roadster can do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds and drive a quarter mile in 8.9 seconds. Those metrics, Musk says, will make it the fastest car in production.
Walmart will be among the first companies to pilot Telsa’s new semi-trailer trucks. The retailer confirmed to CNBC that it has pre-ordered 15 trucks. In total, Walmart has a 6,000-strong fleet of delivery vehicles. In case you missed it: Tesla unveiled its sleek aerodynamic trucks last night. CEO Elon Musk claims they’re much faster than their diesel counterparts, able to hit speeds of 0-60 with an 80,000 pound haul in 20 seconds. They’ll also be able to go 500 miles on a single charge.RR
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".
