The infamous account tracking Elon Musk’s private jet has made its way over to Mastodon following the account being suspended on Twitter.

Just days after taking over as sole owner of Twitter, Elon Musk went on record saying that his commitment to free speech on the app “extends to not banning the account following my plane.”

Despite claiming its existence is a “direct personal safety risk,” the account maintained its presence for over a month.

Just hours after being banned on Twitter, Jack Sweeney, the user behind Elon Musk’s Private Jet tracker account, has already relocated to Mastodon to resume work on the popular microblogging website.

In less than a day, the account has amassed nearly 500 followers and is rising quickly.

This isn’t the first time Elon has attempted to stop his private jet from being publicly tracked, either. In January 2022, he offered Jack Sweeney $5,000 to delete the account from Twitter.

Jack declined the offer back in January, and it appears he’s not going to let Musk stop what he’s doing anytime soon.
