Twitter suspends account dedicated to tracking Elon Musk’s private jet.

Twitter has suspended the account dedicated to tracking the location of billionaire Elon Musk’s private jet.

The account, @ElonJet, was run by Florida college student Jack Sweeney and had amassed more than half a million followers. It tracked Musk’s plane’s location using publicly available flight data and appears to have been suspended Wednesday morning.

Sweeney said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon that his account dedicated to tracking employee jets at Musk’s company SpaceX was also suspended. Shortly afterward, his personal account was suspended.

In a tweet Wednesday evening, Musk said real-time posting of another person’s location violates Twitter’s doxxing policy, but that “delayed posting of locations are ok.” The change will be updated in the language of the company’s doxxing policy, he added.

Sweeney, 20, told CNBC he started the @ElonJet account in June 2020 because he was a fan of Musk’s work at Tesla and SpaceX where he’s CEO of both companies.
