Just in early November, Musk announced that he would not block the @ElonJet account.
Twitter on Wednesday suspended accounts that track the whereabouts of private jets, including an account that tracked CEO Elon Musk’s plane. Musk tweeted that the accounts disclosed non-public personal information.
The @ElonJet account, which has over half a million followers, has been suspended for violating Twitter rules. Later that day, Twitter accounts tracking the planes of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos were also blocked.
The @ElonJet account, which belongs to an American programmer named Jack Sweeney, is tracking with a bot that uses flight data from a source called the ADS-B Exchange.
Musk also said he would sue Sweeney after an unidentified man stalked the car containing Musk’s baby, thinking the billionaire himself was in the car.
Last night, a car with baby X in Los Angeles was chased by a crazy stalker (thinking it was me), who later blocked the car from moving and climbed onto the hood. Lawsuits are being filed against Sweeney and the organizations that supported the harm to my family.
Just in early November, Musk announced that he would not block the @ElonJet account, even considering the risk to his own security.
