The college student who tracks Elon Musk's private jet on Twitter is now doing the same with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' (R) plane.

Jack Sweeney, a student at the University of Central Florida, set up a Twitter account, @DeSantisJet, which tracks the movements of DeSantis' government-owned jet. The Florida governor's use of the jet to fly around the country has generated criticism after the state Senate passed a bill to keep details of his trips redacted. Politico reported the bill will apply to both current and past trips taken by the governor, as well as other top Florida officials.
