DeSantis and Musk Egg in Face or Marketing Genius?


Elon Musk has egg on his face as the worlds second wealthiest man and owner of Twitter, looked like an amateur LP Radio station operator, with a budget of nothing tonight. when the launch announcement of presidential candidate DeSantis feel into chaos. Hear the laughter from the headquarters of mouse who’s media empire didn’t miss a beat this evening…

Hey Elon, do you want to borrow a program manager that checks for glitches? will loan you our very own Anthony Lucero a nice station sponsorship!

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis chose an unconventional way to kick off his presidential campaign with a after the announcement was plagued by technical glitches.

The event was supposed to start at 6 p.m. but didn't kickoff on time 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.

"We're just trying to get it going, there's so many people," somebody said.

Of course, the so many people was estimated at the time as being 360,000! One would think the worlds 2nd wealthiest man would have had technology in place to handle 100 times that number of listeners.

Twitter is a global platform after all, or is it put together with baling wire, nuts and bolts since acquisition by Musk?

All the major media was listening in to the announcement of a credible candidate to take on Trump for the Republican nomination.

However one has to wonder was the glitch and the disastrous launch a stroke of genius?

All of America is talking about the issues with Twitter and the stumbled launch of the De Santos Campaign. The stumble ensures De Santos front and center of the headlines verses a below the fold story for Americas major news papers and the lead to media stations large and LP.
