Twitter glitches plague DeSantis campaign launch

Source: CNBC

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’[s] presidential campaign announcement plans were derailed Wednesday evening by massive technical glitches on Twitter that temporarily kept him from declaring his candidacy. ‘Servers are straining somewhat,’ Elon Musk, Twitter’s owner, was heard saying on the app’s live audio stream where he and DeSantis were supposed to have a conversation that included the governor’s first verbal announcement of his White House bid. Musk’s comment came in between crashes, feedback glitches and audio failures that prevented the conversation on Twitter’s Spaces feature from beginning for around 25 minutes past its scheduled 6 p.m. ET start time. … DeSantis had filed federal paperwork earlier in the day, putting him officially in the running for the Republican presidential nomination.” (05/24/23)
