Biden Trolls Launch DeSantis Twitter Campaign Technical Difficulties
President Joe Biden trolled Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) after DeSantis’ presidential campaign announcement on Twitter Spaces was plagued with technical difficulties.
After filing paperwork to run for president on Tuesday, DeSantis was expected to make his official announcement during a chat on Twitter’s Twitter Spaces audio platform with the social media site’s CEO, Elon Musk.
“Spaces with @RonDeSantis in ~2 hours”, Musk tweeted hours before the scheduled Twitter Spaces conversation.
However, the attempt to launch the campaign encountered multiple technical difficulties. For example, the conversation started seven minutes late, the sound was muted several times, and at one point DeSantis appeared to leave the announcement chat.
Biden took the opportunity to poke fun at DeSantis, who has consistently lagged in Republican primary polls behind frontrunner former President Donald Trump.
“This link works”, Biden tweeted as well as a link to their campaign’s fundraising page.

In the end, Musk and DeSantis had to to change the conversation to a new Spaces chat that had well under half the number of Twitter users waiting for DeSantis’ announcement in the first chat.
