Elon Musk offers $5,000 to young guy to close Twitter account
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and one of the richest men in the world, has offered $5,000 to a 19-year-old guy for shutting down his private jet-tracking Twitter bot.
A report claims that Tesla’s chief executive sent a message to Jack Sweeney, the creator of an account called @ElonJet, alleging that the account is a “security risk”.
Jack Sweeney said he earns only $20 a month from the account but nevertheless turned down Elon Musk’s $5,000 offer and demanded an increase to $50,000.
Jack Sweeney wrote to Elon Musk in a direct Twitter message: “This will be a great support for the college and will probably help me buy a new car.”
Elon Musk reportedly did not respond to Sweeney’s offer, although the Twitter account has not yet shared any information that could endanger Elon Musk.
