Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was set to announce his run for president in a Twitter space with Elon Musk today, but Twitter had other ideas.
The service, which allows for livestreamed group voice chats, quickly cuts off after going live at 3PM PT. The audio muffled in and out, occasionally playing only reverb noise, along with some garbled speech. By 3:15 there were 580,000 listeners to the Twitter space, which was to be hosted by venture capitalist and Musk ally David Sachs.
Since Musk took over last year, Twitter has been beset by technical issues, troubling its employees and slashing company expenses. As of 3:20PM PT, TechCrunch noticed that the live audio session was only available as a recording.
