Entrepreneur and business magnate Elon Musk allegedly offered $5,000 to a 19-year-old boy after he shut down a Twitter bot that tracked the movements of his private jet.
The teenager turned down a $5,000 offer because he tweeted a request for $50,000 directly to Musk, saying; “This would be a big support in college and might get me a car , even a Model 3.”
Elon Musk is the founder, CEO, and chief engineer of SpaceX; early investor, CEO, and product architect of Tesla, Inc.; founder of The Boring Company; and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI.
He is the recipient of the 2018 NYSSCPA Award for Excellence in Financial Journalism and a senior contributor to Forbes.com, where he writes about finance and the changing role of the CFO.
