Masked Man Tried To Track Down Elon Musk

( Last week, Twitter suspended the account set up to track the location of owner Elon Musk’s private jet after his son’s limo was attacked by a masked “stalker” in Los Angeles.

The @ElonJet account, which was set up by Florida college student Jack Sweeney, had amassed over half a million followers as it tracked Musk’s jet.

Last Wednesday, Twitter suspended the account citing Twitter’s policy on doxing people in real-time.

Later that evening, Musk tweeted that real-time posting of someone’s location violates Twitter’s doxing policy, adding that “delayed posting of locations are ok.”

After Musk took over Twitter, he said he would not ban @ElonJet, despite considering it a “direct personal safety risk.”

But after the incident with his son, Musk changed his tune, suspending @ElonJet.

In a tweet last Wednesday, Musk said a car followed the limo his son, X Æ A-Xii, or lil X, was riding. The car then blocked the limo and the driver climbed onto the hood. Musk said he was taking “legal action” against “Sweeney & organizations who supported harm to my family.”

He followed up by posting a video clip of the attack:

Over the weekend, the Washington Post reported that it identified the masked “stalker” by tracking his car which was rented through the car-sharing service Turo.

The driver, Brandon Collado, confirmed to the Washington Post that he was the person in the video Musk posted on Twitter. He acknowledged that he “has an interest” in Elon Musk and his former girlfriend, singer Grimes, the mother of two of Musk’s children.

Collado claimed he got into an earlier altercation with one of Musk’s security people at a gas station while he was making deliveries for Uber Eats. He also claimed that Musk had been stalking him and his family for a year.
