Elon Musk, a billionaire, offered Jack Sweeney, 19, $5,000 to shut down a Twitter account that was used to track the tycoon’s private jet.
Money, it is said, cannot fix all issues. This is a typical example of one of the scenarios where money couldn’t fully solve a problem, could more money have remedied the situation?
However, according to information obtained from the Business Insider website, the proposal was rejected by the Sweeney. To the website,Business Insider, Sweeney stated that the offer was insufficient to compensate for the satisfaction he derives from handling the twitter account.
According to Business Insider, the billionaire reached the young guy via direct message on Twitter, requesting that he remove and deactivate his account and stating that the account constituted a security risk to the billionaire’s personal information.
With Musk, Sweeney described how his robot is capable of following the billionaire’s private plane and offered technical advise on how the Tesla founder could make his jet become less trackable.
This is followed by another proposal from the billionaire, who says, “How about $5,000 for this account and a hand to make it difficult for insane people to track me?” “Do you think there’s a chance we can raise it to $50,000?” Sweeney asks, which Musk gave no further reply.
Aside from that, the young man claims that the money would be utilized to assist him in paying for his education and might even be used to purchase a car.
