The man who tracked Elon Musk’s private jet has been removed from Twitter, after Elon Musk initially pledged to leave the account as proof of his commitment to free speech.
Similarly, Twitter has once again suspended the account tracking the location of Elon Musk’s private jet. Elon Musk tweeted how dangerous location-sharing is and claimed that a crazed stalker climbed onto the hood of a car last night because the person thought Elon Musk was inside the vehicle.
He then added that legal action was being taken against organizations that harmed Sweeney and my family, an apparent reference to Jack Sweeney, the creator of the @ElonJet account that tracks his jet.
Twitter has restored the account that was tracking Elon Musk’s location just hours after he was banned from his private jet. At the time of the account’s reappearance, Twitter posted that it had updated the company’s personal information policy “to prohibit the sharing of someone else’s live location in most cases”.
The accounts will be allowed to share someone else’s historical location information, meaning an @ElonJet account can publicize the owner’s jet’s location on Twitter, Elon Musk’s company said, when someone follows someone on Twitter Live. follows. If the location is shared then the risk of physical harm increases.
Going forward we will remove Tweets sharing this information, and accounts dedicated to sharing someone else’s live location will be suspended. The account, which is run by someone named Jack Sweeney, tweeted at Elon Musk asking for clarification on how long tracking would be delayed to comply with the new policy, but Elon Musk has yet to respond.
