Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Officially Launches 2024 Presidential Campaign During Twitter Event

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has officially launched his 2024 presidential campaign, though not without hiccups.

His planned Twitter Spaces conversation, scheduled for 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday, saw multiple technical issues that delayed his announcement by more than 20 minutes, as the platform kept crashing. Twitter owner Elon Musk, who was hosting the conversation, blamed the technical difficulties on servers not having sufficient bandwidth for the hundreds of thousands of people who were tuning in.

After launching a second Spaces from the Twitter account of entrepreneur David Sacks, Musk apologized and said, “I think we’re definitely breaking new ground here. As far as I know. No major presidential candidate has ever announced their candidacy on social media this way, certainly in a Twitter Space. So thank you for doing that.”
