Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ announcement of his intention to run for the US presidency was overshadowed by technical problems on Twitter on Wednesday.

Desantis announced his intention to run in the Republican primaries in an interview with Twitter owner Elon Musk and investor David Sachs in the “Twitter Spaces” segment.

However, the interview was hampered from the beginning by technical problems. Twitter Spaces crashed several times before Desantis could say anything.

At one point, Musk and Sachs were heard talking about how many listeners had tuned in, but then Twitter Spaces crashed again before they could continue the conversation. Later, a recording of what he said earlier was played over what Sachs had said, completely confusing the audience.

Technical errors caused a 24-minute delay before DeSantis got a chance to explain why he should be president of the United States.

On Wednesday, Desantis submitted an application to the Federal Election Commission to start in the US presidential elections. He is expected to be former President Donald Trump’s main rival for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

In an interview on Twitter Spaces, Desantis read a speech he has given in many places in the United States, outlining what he had done in Florida, and then answered questions from Musk, Sachs and his supporters.

Internet users, of course, did not leave uncommented technical problems in “Twitter Spaces”.

US President Joe Biden also tweeted a link to a fundraising page for his campaign with the note “this link is working”.

Desantis, 44, who, like Trump, espouses conservative values, could win the support of voters who prefer a younger alternative to the 76-year-old ex-president.

Presidential elections are scheduled for November next year. Trump announced his intention to seek the Republican Party’s presidential nomination last November. On the other hand, the current president, Democrat Joe Biden, announced his intention to run for a second four-year term in the White House in April this year.
