Suspended from Twitter, the account tracking Elon Musk’s jet has landed on Threads

An account that tracks the movements of Elon Musk’s private jet, previously suspended from Twitter, has now moved to Threads.

Moving platforms: The account “Elon Musk’s Jet” made its first post on Threads last week.
* Owner Jack Sweeney announced the move with a post stating “ElonJet has arrived to Threads!”
* Threads, an offshoot of Instagram, debuted on Wednesday and has already seen 70 million new sign-ups.

Legal tensions: An attorney for Musk-owned Twitter has hinted at possible legal action against Threads.
* Accusations include “systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property.”
* Meta officials, including communications director Andy Stone, have dismissed these allegations.

Notable history: Jack Sweeney, a Florida college student, gained notoriety for the Twitter account that posted public transponder information from Musk’s private plane.
* After Musk purchased Twitter, he allowed the account to remain in the name of free speech, but later suspended it citing a “physical safety violation.”
* Sweeney returned to Twitter with a new account, “ElonJet but Delayed,” which posts information on Musk’s plane with a 24-hour delay.

Tracking beyond Musk: Musk’s jet isn’t the only one Sweeney tracks — he also posts information about planes used by notable persons such as Mark Zuckerberg, former President Trump, Jeff Bezos, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift.
