Technical issues hamper DeSantis campaign launch

Technical issues plague Governor Ron DeSantis’ highly anticipated presidential campaign launch, as Twitter Spaces audio continued to cut out even before DeSantis was introduced.

The Spaces Twitter call, which is scheduled to launch at 6 p.m. EST, began several minutes late as an unidentified voice whispered that it was “quiet.” David Sacks, the entrepreneur who organizes the event, started introducing Elon Musk and claimed it was “historic” before the audio cut. From then on, the audio continued to cut out several times, with continuous echoes and seemingly random voices – not the voice of the Governor, who the conversation was about.

“I would just like to introduce the people in the room here. So it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be making history without the man sitting next to me, Elon Musk, his decision to buy this rig last year,” Sacks said, praising Musk before the audio problems only start to take over.

They continued to make excuses for the audio issues, claiming they were “melting services”, which they called a “good sign”. Eventually, all of the audio ended, leaving listeners confused.

However, DeSantis’ team tweeted, “It looks like we broke the internet with so much gusto…” urging people to donate to the governor’s presidential campaign.

The original Twitter Spaces conversation was not restored and the organizers appeared start a new.
