To do this, it cross-references several theft sources using algorithms and then publishes the information on several automated accounts powered by bots. And decided to extend its surveillance to Elon Musk, also tracked down by the young Floridian during his private flights. A possibility that did not please one of the richest men on the planet at all.
Other billionaires in the viewfinder
According to several American media, including Insider, the billionaire, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, saw it as a danger to his safety, not liking “the idea of being shot by a crackpot” thanks to the dissemination of this data. He would therefore have contacted the young man via the social network and offered 5,000 dollars for him to close his account. Offer dismissed by the latter, who would have offered the billionaire an internship in one of his companies and… 50,000 greenbacks.
This time, it was Elon Musk who refused, no doubt aware of putting his finger in an expensive gear. The billionaire allegedly tried to change the identifier of his jet to make it harder to follow, before ending the conversation and blocking the student.
