Dec 15, 2022 | Political News

Twitter has blacklisted the account that published public information about the movement of Elon Musk’s private jet, claiming it violates the site’s rules. Elon Musk had previously called the account “free speech.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that Twitter has suspended the account @ElonJet which was created by Jack Sweeney, a student at the University of Central Florida, to use public data from plane transponders that log longitude, latitude, and altitude to track the flight path of Elon Musk’s private jet.

Sweeney confirmed the suspension of the account in a tweet from his personal account — which has now also been suspended — stating: “Well it appears @ElonJet is suspended.”
