Free speech is more valuable than my life… Twitter account that ‘spying’ Elon Musk will not be closed

Washington : The world’s richest man Elon Musk recently bought the micro-blogging platform Twitter. He is constantly emphasizing on ‘Free Speech’ i.e. ‘Freedom of Expression’. In a tweet, Elon Musk told how serious he is about free speech. He told his followers that he prefers free speech over his personal safety. Musk said he would not suspend the account of a person who tracks his private jet, even though it is a threat to his personal safety.

The entire matter is linked to a Twitter handle named @ElonJet which is now under question. This account belongs to an American programmer named Jack Sweeney. According to the Twitter bio, a bot tracks Musk’s private jet N628TS using flight data from a source called the ADS-B Exchange. Earlier this year, Musk offered the account’s operator $5,000 to stop tracking. But he demanded 50 thousand dollars and an internship.

Account closure offer
He didn’t get it though. Jack Sweeney later said that he would close the account if Musk allowed him to visit his private and make a video of it. Jack’s account is still active. The last time he told the location of Musk’s jet was on November 5 from New Jersey to Austin. He is thankful to Musk for not closing his account.

Said to Musk – thank you!
In response to Musk’s tweet, he wrote, ‘Thank you for keeping your promise on free speech.’ Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk can make many big changes in the company. He has taken decisions like paying $ 8 per month for verification and laying off employees on a large scale. Twitter cannot become a ‘free-for-all hellscape’ where anyone can say anything without fearing the consequences. He said that he wants to encourage healthy debate on the platform.
