Elon Musk banned in social networks the creator of a Twitter bot that tracks the location of his plane
A student from the USA created a Twitter bot based on open data that tracks the movement of Elon Musk's Gulfstream G650. For this, the billionaire blocked the guy on social networks.

Initially, nineteen-year-old Jack Sweeney received an offer from Musk to remove the bot for $5,000, arguing that “crazy people” could follow it. The guy asked for $50 thousand for this, which Musk promised to think about, but there was no answer. On January 26, Sweeney asked for an internship at one of Musk's firms, but again there was no response.

According to Bloomberg, Jack said that Musk banned him from all social networks. And the guy told Business Insider that the entrepreneur has taken steps to make it difficult to spy on his side, but the restrictions are easily bypassed. In addition, Jack noted that he was aware of the possible consequences of creating his bot.

However, Jack is not upset. He willingly gives interviews to various publications and rejoices at the numerous mentions of his name in the media. The number of Elon Musk's Jet account subscribers during this time has increased from 85 to 272 thousand.
