Jack Sweeney, a 20-year-old student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, tracks and exposes celebrity flight logs on his Twitter account. He has tracked flights from Tom Cruise, Kylie Jenner, and especially Elon Musk. Last year, Musk offered $5,000 for Sweeney to take down the account, but communications stopped when Sweeney asked for $50,000.
The student is still open to taking down the account but for the right price. Sweeny said, “If he [Musk] let me fly with him on his jet, record it and talk about it — and maybe not even pay me the $50,000 [previously asked for] — I would take it down. That is still up for discussion.”
There is one businessman Sweeney cannot track: Apple CEO Tim Cook. Sweeney said, “I wish Tim Cook was possible, but he is on a shared agreement with [charter jet pool] NetJets. When you have that, you use any of the planes that NetJets flies. I can’t track the one plane. If Elon was smart enough, he would have better hidden his plane. I guess Tim Cook is smart about that. If he gets his own jet, I’ll track him.”
