Meta suspends accounts tracking Elon Musk’s jet, citing privacy concerns

  • Meta suspended the @elonmusksjet accounts on Instagram and Threads which used public flight data to document Musk’s jet whereabouts.
  • The accounts had gained attention of Meta moderators and had been suspended, restored, and then suspended again; creator Jack Sweeney hopes it’s a mistake.
  • Twitter had also previously suspended a similar account (@elonjet) after Musk claimed it shared his ‘assassination coordinates’; Sweeney now posts location info with a 24-hour delay on Twitter.
