New York (CNN Business)Jack Sweeney, a 19-year-old from Florida, rejected a $5,000 offer from Elon Musk to dexe his Twitter account that tracks the billionaire's private jet.

來自佛羅里達州的19歲少年杰克·斯威尼(Jack Sweeney)拒絕了埃隆·馬斯克(Elon Musk) 的5000美元(約合人民幣3800元)要求他刪除追蹤這位億萬富翁私人飛機的推特賬戶的請求。

ElonJet has over 150,000 followers, and uses a bot that Sweeney developed to monitor Musk's flights. The feed then tweets out when and where the plane takes off or lands and the duration of each trip.
The college freshman has developed about a dozen other flight bot accounts that track the travels of high-profile tech titans, including Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos.

ElonJet擁有超過15萬名粉絲,并使用斯威尼開發的一個機器人來監控馬斯克的飛行。
然后,該系統會在推特上發布飛機起飛或降落的時間和地點,以及每次飛行的持續時間。
這位大學新生還開發了大約12個飛行機器人賬戶,跟蹤包括比爾·蓋茨(Bill Gates)和杰夫·貝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)在內的知名科技巨頭的旅行。

The initial direct message from Musk came November 30, Protocol first reported.

《Protocol》首先報道稱,馬斯克于11月30日發出了最初的信息。

"Can you take this down?," Musk asked Sweeney. "It's a security risk."

“你能把這個拿下來嗎?”馬斯克問斯威尼?!斑@是一個安全風險?!?br>原創翻譯:龍騰網 http://www.360yingketong.cn 轉載請注明出處


The Tesla and SpaceX CEO eventually offered the teenager $5,000 to help prevent "crazy people" from tracking his flights. Sweeney countered asking for $50,000, saying he could use the money for college and maybe a Tesla (TSLA) Model 3.

最終,這位特斯拉和SpaceX的首席執行官提出給這名少年5000美元,以幫助預防“瘋子”跟蹤他的航班。斯威尼則提出要5萬美元,說他可以用這筆錢上大學,或許還可以買輛特斯拉Model 3。

"I don't love the idea of being shot by a nutcase," Musk said.
The last message exchange was Wednesday, Jan. 19, when Musk said it didn't feel right "to pay to shut this down." CNN Business has viewed the messages.

“我不喜歡被一個瘋子打下來,”馬斯克說。最后一次信息交流是在1月19日星期三,當時馬斯克表示,“花錢關閉這個賬號”感覺不太好。
CNN商業頻道已經查看了這些信息。

"Options other than remuneration like an internship would make taking it down a lot easier," Sweeney replied. Musk has not yet responded.

斯威尼回答說:“除了實習這樣的報酬之外,還有其他選擇可以讓它更容易關閉?!瘪R斯克尚未做出回應。

CNN has reached out to SpaceX for comment.
Sweeney said he's been a fan of SpaceX since the first Falcon Heavy launch in 2018. His father works for an airline, fueling his interest in aviation.

美國有線電視新聞網(CNN)已聯系SpaceX尋求置評。
斯威尼表示,自2018年第一次獵鷹重型火箭發射以來,他一直是SpaceX的粉絲。他的父親在一家航空公司工作,這激發了他對航空的興趣。

"5,000 is not enough for how much I get out of it," Sweeney said. "It doesn't replace anything, like the enjoyment factor."
Sweeney did offer Musk some technical advice, telling the billionaire about a blocking program he could use to counter flight tracking programs.

斯威尼說:“5000美元不夠彌補我從中得到的?!薄八荒苋〈魏螙|西,比如享受的因素?!?br /> 斯威尼確實給馬斯克提供了一些技術建議,告訴這位億萬富翁他可以用一個攔截程序來對抗飛行跟蹤程序。

"It looks like he took that advice," Sweeney said, saying it appears Musk is currently using the blocking program.
So is Sweeney is still able to track Musk's flights despite the blocking program? "I am," Sweeney said. "It's just a bit more complicated."

“看起來他接受了這個建議,”斯威尼說,并表示馬斯克目前似乎正在使用屏蔽程序。
那么,盡管有屏蔽程序,斯威尼還能跟蹤馬斯克的飛行嗎?
“是的,”斯威尼說。
“只是有點復雜?!?br />
