Taylor Swift, the renowned singer-songwriter, recently found herself embroiled in a legal dispute with Jack Sweeney, a college student known for tracking celebrity jets and previously facing backlash from Elon Musk.
Musk had previously banned Sweeney from Twitter, accusing him of posting concerning content. Now, Swift's attorney has issued a cease-and-desist letter to Sweeney, alleging that his social media activities are causing direct harm and distress to the singer.
In response, Sweeney has maintained that his intentions are not malicious and that he respects Swift's work as an artist. He emphasizes his commitment to transparency and public access to information.
Sweeney's online presence revolves around sharing publicly available data from sources like the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and signals emitted by private jets. Additionally, he provides estimates of fuel usage and greenhouse gas emissions associated with these flights.
Despite facing restrictions on certain platforms, Sweeney continues to disseminate data, including information about Musk's private jet with a 24-hour delay on a new account on X. He has also migrated to Instagram Threads after being banned by Musk.
Across various social media platforms, including Threads, Instagram, Facebook, Bluesky, and others, Sweeney operates multiple accounts to share his insights and observations.
