19-year-old tracking the jets of billionaires: Zuckerberg 'was a bit harder' than Musk

At least for billionaires like Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the days of celebrities jet-setting without their whereabouts being known are long gone.

After his Twitter account @ElonJet went viral, Jack Sweeney, 19, became an instant superstar.

The account, which has over 470,000 followers, employs a bot to track Musk's private jet's whereabouts automatically.

Sweeney told Yahoo Finance Live that some billionaires are easier to track down than others (video above). "It's registered to a SpaceX subsidiary, Falcon Landing, with Elon Musk."

Mark Zuckerberg was a little more difficult. And I only lately discovered his genuine one.

Musk initially urged Sweeney to disable the ElonJet account as a security measure, according to Sweeney.

He even inquired about it with Sweeney. Musk eventually offered Sweeney $5,000 to close the account, but Sweeney reacted with a $50,000 demand.
