19-year-old has turned down the offer of a free Tesla Model 3 in return for deleting his Twitter account 

Musk had previously asked for Sweeney to take the account down earlier in the fall in exchange for $5,000

College freshman Jack Sweeney manages a Twitter account called @ElonJet which tracks the aircraft using bots to detect air traffic data.

Sweeney, who is studying information technology, created 15 Twitter bots tracking the private planes of tech billionaires including Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos

Car-hire company Autonomy CEO Scott Painter then offered Sweeney a Tesla Model 3 under a three-year contract via Twitter on Friday in exchange for the account deletion. 

Sweeney said he came to the decision as he wants his own car rather than a temporary model. 

'I want my own car. I don't want to have to give it back in three years,' Sweeney told the Wall Street Journal. 'If I got an actual Tesla, then I would take it down.'
