The account that followed Elon Musk’s jet (and was suspended by Twitter) is now on Threads

Jack Sweeney He returned to a social network and it is not Twitter: he arrived at Threads. For those who don’t remember, it’s the university student who made him tracking Elon Musk’s private jet, and whose account in the blue bird network was suspended for this reason.

“ElonJet has arrived at Threads!”, wrote Sweeney last Thursday, in a publication that had 233 replies and 8,475 likes so far. The account name is @elonmusksjet and already has 80 thousand followers.

Threads is the new social network from Meta, direct competition from Elon Musk’s Twitter, which arrives with the flag of being “healthier” than the original. Almost every element of Musk’s platform is present in Mark Zuckerberg’s.

Currently has exceeded 70 million users, with 10 million only in the first hours.

Subsequently, Sweeney ironically asked Zuckerberg if it would be allowed to stay on the network, alluding to the suspension of which he was a victim on Twitter.

Jack Sweeney and the suspension of the Twitter account by Elon Musk

Back then, Elon Musk sanctioned the aircraft tracking account, arguing that it it was forbidden to share the current location of anyone, for security reasons.

The South African also threatened legal action against the university student, as he had “Supported the damage to my family.”

Musk had previously promised not to: “My commitment to freedom of expression It even extends to not banning the account that follows my plane, although that is a direct risk to personal safety.”

Before his suspension from Twitter, Jack Sweeney had bot accounts that tracked the flight paths of not only Musk, but other celebrities as well, like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and even Zuckerberg himself.

To do this, Sweeney used flight information from public domains.

Even after the Russian invasion of Ukraine began in February 2022, Jack Sweeney followed up on the flight paths of Russian oligarchs.

We’ll see how far it goes Jack Sweeney on this new platform.
