US: DeSantis announces presidential run amid Twitter flaws

World A- A A+
The governor of Florida announced his bid during a Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk. However, the 2024 presidential pitch was knocked out for large parts by the platform's inability to produce audio.
EDnews informs via DW that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday officially entered the 2024 US presidential race, filing out paperwork with the Federal Election Commission.
The move came ahead of an announcement via Twitter Spaces with the social media platform's CEO Elon Musk.
But that declaration was initially beset by technical glitches as the social media platform struggled to maintain the audio, before crashing on multiple occasions.
Musk said the problems were due to "straining" servers because so many people were trying to tune into the event.
Since taking over Twitter in October, Musk has laid off thousands of employees, from engineers to product managers. Some 70% of the workforce has been reportedly eliminated.
