Twitter Fails During Musk’s Talk With DeSantis

Twitter Spaces failed to work properly on Wednesday as billionaire Elon Musk prepared to speak to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who threw his hat into the already crowded Republican presidential nomination.

After a delay of several minutes, David Sacks, a venture capitalist with Craft Ventures, introduced Musk, who is CEO of Tesla  (TSLA) – Get Free Report and also acquired Twitter last October.

But technical glitches interrupted the audio conversation on Twitter Spaces several times. According to Twitter Spaces, 361,000 accounts were listening, which could have contributed to the malfunction.

Musk blamed the servers, saying they were “straining.”

Among the GOP listeners were conservative televison host Laura Ingraham, former mayor of New York City and ally of former President Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani, political commentator Tomi Lahren, former Trump lawyer Jena Ellis, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz and political strategist Steve Schmidt.

DeSantis announced his bid to be the Republican candidate on Wednesday.
