Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis choose an unconventional way to kick off his presidential campaign with a live event on Twitter Spaces and it quickly proved problematic after the announcement was plagued by technical glitches.
The event was supposed to start at 6 p.m. but didn’t kickoff until 6:08 and then immediately cut out. It then started again with moderator David Sacks saying “we’ve got so many people here that we are kind of melting the servers which is a good sign.”
Then the conversation cut out again. It then started again, and cut out again. As of 6:19 p.m. it was still out.
“We’re just trying to get it going, there’s so many people,” somebody said.

The Trump campaign was quick to pounce.
“This is a clown show,” said Chris LaCivita, a Trump campaign official.
