The billionaire reached out to the 19-year-old, Jack Sweeney, last November to express concern about a Twitter account he runs called @ElonJet, which provides regular updates on flights of well-known figures by using publicly available data.

Musk offered Jack $5,000 (Rs 3.75 lakhs) to stop tweeting about his jets. However, Jack turned down Musk's offer and instead demanded $50,000 (Rs 37.55 lakhs), saying that the amount would cover his college fees and also help him buy a Tesla car, according to Protocol.
