A teenager recently received a request from Elon Musk, who recently claimed he paid $11bn tax, on Twitter and agreed to help him out, but only if he agreed to pay him $50,000. 

According to Protocol, 19-year-old Jack Sweeney created the account @ElonJet on the social media platform, which shares the location and movements of the Space X founder’s private plane. 

The outlet report that the billionaire, who was named Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year,’ messaged the teen saying: “Can you take this down? It is a security risk.”

Sweeney reportedly replied: “Yes I can but it’ll cost you a Model 3, only joking, unless?”

To which Musk allegedly said: “I don’t love the idea of being shot by a nutcase.” 

Apparently, after a few messages back and forth, he offered Sweeney $5,000 to remove the account.

It’s been reported the teen replied: “Any chance to up that to $50k? It would be a great support in college and would possibly allow me to get a car, maybe even a Model 3.”

According to the outlet, Musk said he would think about it but hasn’t been back in touch.

The account remains up and running, and the bio reads: “Tracking Elon Musk’s Private Jet (N628TS) with a bot using public ADS-B data.”

Its most recent update reads: “Took off from Kahului, Hawaii, US. Landed in Austin, Texas, US. Apx. flt. time 6 Hours: 21 Mins.”

Sweeney also told followers: “Elon got PIA blocking program but already found the aircraft.” 

When someone asked what it was, another user responded: “It means Musk is trying to get privacy to prevent tracking, and the OP is purposely circumventing it after trying to extort $50,000 from Musk.

“Feels like retaliation by the @ElonJet account to bypass any measures just to track @elonmusk.”
