Twitter Spaces crashes repeatedly during DeSantis 2024 announcement
'The servers are straining somewhat,' Twitter CEO Elon Musk said

By Thomas Catenacci | Fox News



ROGRAMMING ALERT: Want to actually see and hear Ron DeSantis? Tune into Fox News at 8pm ET

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' presidential campaign announcement was mired by repeated technical glitches on Twitter Wednesday evening, in a black eye for the social media platform.

The highly-anticipated announcement, set to be made via a conversation with Twitter CEO Elon Musk and tech entrepreneur David Sacks on Twitter's "Spaces" feature, was delayed as it appeared the platform was overwhelmed. Twitter's mobile app repeatedly crashed and users complained that they were unable to hear the broadcast.

Nearly 700,000 users logged in to hear the announcement roughly 20 minutes after it was launched. The event was then abruptly shut down without explanation.

"The servers are straining somewhat," Musk was heard saying at one point.

Twitter users pummeled Musk over the botched rollout, and Democrats were quick to capitalize.

DeSantis should send those critics thank you notes for giving him more publicity.  And the easy out "we had a lot more folks trying to access than were expected."

You either had way more people than expected listening, or pants crapping liberals trying to crash it.

Either way, DeSantis is a top tier candidate.
The Republic is lost.

DeSantis launched his intent to run too early.  He should have waited a couple of more months.  Just my opinion.

This wasn't a good start at all.

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Indeed.

That was my first thought...that the rats were trying to crash it...Ron should have just had a conventional campaign announcement.. :shrug:

AOC Trolls DeSantis for Low Turnout for Announcement on Twitter Spaces

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) trolled Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and boasted that she drew more viewers streaming a video game than DeSantis did for his presidential campaign launch, which occurred on a Twitter Spaces chat on Tuesday.

So who can we run in 2028? Assuming we still have elections then.

If Twitter spaces can't handle 700,000 viewers trying to watch, what is going to happen to Tucker when 3 or 4 million try? Not a good look for Twitter.
