Automated Twitter bot @ElonJet showed Musk’s private jet landing in San Francisco, California after being underway for just 9 minutes.

Driving time for Musk’s ride would have been about 48 minutes without traffic.

“Elon Musk’s private jet just completed a nine-minute flight, but you better not throw the wrong kind of plastic into your recycling,” wrote one Twitter user, attacking the environmental impact of Musk’s jet.

“Okay, but you have to consider how painful it is to be stuck in traffic surrounded by Teslas,” wrote another jokingly.

“Do you have any idea how much 9 minutes of Elon’s time is worth?” wrote a third.

However, Elon’s fans jumped to his defense and attempted to set the record straight.

After landing in San Francisco, @ElonJet shows Musk taking off again and flying to Austin, Texas, which took about three flight hours.

Travel time between San Francisco and Austin is approximately 25 hours.

Even after learning about the longer flight, not all Twitter users were impressed.

“Criticism (of Musk) is always fair,” wrote one.
