Florida Governor Ron DeSantis faced a challenging beginning to his anticipated Presidential campaign announcement on Wednesday night, leading to disappointment and frustration for many.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis faced a challenging beginning to his anticipated Presidential campaign announcement on Wednesday night, leading to disappointment and frustration for many.

 

As he set his sights on the 2024 presidential race, DeSantis participated in a Twitter Spaces event, joined by Twitter CEO Elon Musk and Craft Ventures co-founder David Sacks, to launch his campaign.

 

However, the sheer number of attendees overwhelmed the platform, causing multiple crashes within the first few minutes of the event.

DeSantis' highly anticipated announcement got off to a rocky start, failing to meet people's expectations and sparking a wave of criticism on Twitter.

 

Users expressed their dissatisfaction with the launch, labeling it as a "disastrous" event, which quickly became a trending topic with the hashtag #Desaster.

 

The event was marred by technical difficulties that persisted throughout. Glitches, echoes, and overwhelming feedback plagued the proceedings, resulting in only brief snippets of comments from Musk and Sacks in the initial 24 minutes and no remarks from DeSantis.

 

Sacks attributed these issues to the overwhelming number of participants, which initially exceeded 200,000 and later grew to nearly half a million by 6:13 p.m. Eastern time.

 

As Sacks observed the overcrowded servers, he interpreted it as a positive indication. However, his audio abruptly ceased once more, leaving a void of silence.

 

At approximately 6:15 p.m., the virtual video conference attempted to fill the void with instrumental music but eventually succumbed to another crash. Shortly afterward, the Twitter Spaces event went offline completely, although listeners were still able to access a distorted recording of the proceedings.

 

Following these technical difficulties, numerous fans turned to Twitter to share amusing memes, highlighting the unfortunate technological breakdown that marred DeSantis's Presidential launch.

A Twitter user humorously commented on a picture of Ron DeSantis, suggesting that his presidential campaign launch was going exactly as they would expect from someone who eats pudding with their fingers.

 

The President also shared a mock video about DeSantis, emphasizing that his agenda is unmistakably clear. After resolving technical difficulties, the event continued without a hitch.

 

DeSantis and other speakers praised Elon Musk for transforming Twitter into a platform that safeguards "free speech."

 

The event went beyond its planned duration by over 20 minutes because DeSantis tried to answer questions from chosen individuals like Congressman Thomas Massie and talk show host Steve Deace.

 

Toward the end of the event, Musk used Twitter Spaces to invite other Presidential candidates. Shortly after the event, he reiterated his invitation in a tweet, expressing that all Presidential candidates are welcome on the platform.
