How Toddler Twitter Follows Russian Oligarchs

Written by Esteban Pardo

Jack Sweeney, a 19-year-old student in the United States. He is known as a teenager who monitors the private jets of the rich. They post their information on Twitter using publicly available information and an automated computer program called “boot”.

In the technology industry, Swinny came to the attention of the media to follow the lead of big names, such as Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

But now he is also pursuing private jets, called Oligarchs, by some of Russia’s richest billionaires.

Russian Oligarch Jets

Swini’s new automated Twitter account is called Russian oligarch jets.

Bot uses a public database to track the plane and then post Twitter tweets with their location and flight time, when any aircraft takes off or lands.

One of the targets is Vladimir Potani. Potanin is the 10th richest man in the world and the second richest man in Russia. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index estimates that potassium is estimated at $ 87 billion (78 billion euros).

It also monitors Roman Abramovich aircraft and helicopters. Abramovich, among other things, owns Chelsea Football Club in England – although he has handed over the reins of the club, apparently due to the war in Ukraine and the resulting sanctions against Russia.

One of Abramovich’s planes was recently spotted flying from St. Jones in Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean. This does not mean that he was on a plane.

Swinny told the New York Post that the US and its allies had begun to impose sanctions on Russia and its “intellectuals” after receiving “questions” and launching a new identity.

How Swine Tracks Work

@RUOligarchJets ADSBB Exchange uses a public source database.

Volunteers, known as “pastors,” monitor flights, use three-bit cheaper equipment.

ADS-B Exchange “All you need is a Raspberry Pi computer, a software defensive radio (SDR) scanner and antenna” for $ 100 to $ 200.

The feeders use the configuration to receive ADS-B transmissions from aircraft.

ADS-B means automatic dependent transmission. It is an aircraft tracking technology that distinguishes aircraft, their location and speed from other objects. Like the Automatic Identification System (AIS) used on ships.

Anyone with an antenna can receive these broadcasts. You also need an SDR and a computer to process ADS-B signals, but that’s basically how the database and swipe Twitter bots work.

IT’s First Graduation has created another account called @PutinJet, which in its statement reads “Russian VIP Jets and Any Putin.”

Flight tracking fan

Sweeney announced on its Twitter account that it was monitoring more than 150 aircraft, including “All US Air Force aircraft” and US President Air Force 1.

It lists aircraft tracking numbers and the names of their owners. But I wondered how even a mask could identify and track a teenager in a boat – based on a screenshot between the two, published by the New York Post.

“Maybe just landing and picking up certain types of planes?” Looks like Musk asked Swine.

There are open records, but they do not reveal all the details. So that is an obvious question.

Swine said it has started tracking accounts like @ElonJet as a hobby. He said he was a fan of Musk and was only interested in music.

At the time of writing, @ElonJet has about 400,000 followers.

And now Swine has become interested in himself.

Musk asked Swini to stop following his craft, and offered him $ 5,000.

Swinny refused.

The college student asked for $ 50,000.

And Musk rejected it.
