Jack Sweeney became a household name when he started telling the world every time Musk's plane took a journey.
He attracted a lot of attention after Musk was alerted to the Twitter account that followed his jet's every move.
The tech billionaire offered the 19-year-old $5,000 to shut it down and Sweeney countered the proposal tenfold.
Musk clearly didn't want to play ball and knocked back the $50,000 request. He eventually blocked Sweeney so he couldn't message again.

Sweeney launched similar accounts that tracked other high-profile celebrities as they crisscrossed America in their private jets.
He became so popular that private jet business Stratos Jet Charters also offered a place for Sweeney on their tech development team.
However, following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the UFC Student is now monitoring the flight patterns belonging to Russian oligarchs.

He launched his Twitter account 'Russian Oligarch Jets' over the weekend and it has already accumulated more than 66,000 followers.
He's making sure the world knows what Russian private jet owners are up to.
After the US imposed sanctions on Russia for invading Ukraine, America also called for President Vladimir Putin's nearest and dearest's precious assets to be frozen.
The White House wrote on Twitter: "This coming week, we will launch a multilateral Transatlantic task force to identify, hunt down, and freeze the assets of sanctioned Russian companies and oligarchs - their yachts, their mansions, and any other ill-gotten gains that we can find and freeze under the law."
CNBC reported that these Russians have quickly begun moving their mega-yachts and private jets to prevent them from being seized.
However, thanks to Sweeney, Russian oligarchs have already tracked several Russian jets owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich showing he took a quick trip to the Caribbean this week.
Other Twitter accounts have also emerged tracking Russian flights and jets, however, Sweeney warned that these trackings weren't as accurate because there's limited flight data in Russia.
