Musk claimed the move was required following an incident that was in Los Angeles carrying one of his children was snatched by “a insane stalker” and appeared to blame the surveillance of his plane to be the cause.
Certain journalists had covered the incident, and tweeted which referenced the account suspended by @elonjet, which Musk declared to be “assassination of coordinates” against Musk as well as his relatives.
