Elon Musk offered $5,000 to delete his Twitter account which was interfering with the Tesla CEO’s privacy. The boy donor quickly accepted and now works at one of America’s most innovative companies!
Elon Musk is a man who has been in the public eye for years, but it’s only recently that he truly became known as more than just an entrepreneur and innovator. His posts on Twitter often spark controversy or hilarious memes- sometimes both!
Musk’s strong opinions on Twitter caught the eye of one teenager, who promptly received $1 million from Musk in exchange for shutting down his account!
Jack Sweeney was just a 19-year old man with an internet connection, but he managed to get Elon Musk’s Attention. He created the Twitter account “Elonjet” which tracked wherein real-time Mr. Mucks’ plane would be traveling at any given moment! This immediately caught the eyes of Tesla’s founder who viewed this as something privacy & security threat so they canceled his flight plans for a while until things cool off
It seems like all these people have something against innovative minds nowadays…
When Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX sent a message to Sweeney asking him to take down his account which tracks plane location he was unhappy about all these tweets being posted online.
Musk’s letter to Sweeney read, “Can you take this down? It is a security risk.” The teenager replied with an inspired reply that chilled out Musk. He said something along the lines of ‘I don’t love the idea of being shot by some nutcase’ in their conversation before bidding farewell for good humor’s sake!
Sweeney immediately took up Musk’s offer and shut down his Twitter account. He then went on to ask for more money, saying that the reward would be a great support in college as well as possibly allowing him to get a car or even Model 3 if things worked out right with Tesla’s latest offering!
Jack Sweeney is a college freshman who has created around 15 bot accounts, including the one that tracks Elon Musk’s jet. When this conversation between him and Mr. Midnight went viral on Twitter it sparked much attention for his work!
He has created accounts that track the private jets of several high-profile people such as Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates. The college student said these helped him learn a lot about coding, even got him an interview at UberJets!
