Remember Ronny DeShabbos announcing that he was going to announce that he was running for president? He decided that he was going to do this on Twatter, Elon Musk’s fake free speech platform. I should have foreseen that Elon Musk would fail not just on a political level, but also a technical one.
The app crashed repeatedly as Twitter users tried to listen to the event where Twitter owner Elon Musk joined DeSantis for the announcement.
DeSantis eventually was able to speak, about 20 minutes after the scheduled start, after Musk closed the initial Twitter Spaces event and started a second one on the app. That space attracted about 161,000 users, according to Twitter’s public-facing data, as DeSantis read a short speech.
As the first Twitter Spaces event kicked off, metrics published by Twitter indicated that more than 600,000 were attempting to listen.
“We’ve got so many people here that I think we are kind of melting the servers,” Sacks said at one point.
They went from 600,000 people waiting for this puppet to deliver his unwanted speech, to 161,000. Great job, Elon. Really hitting it out of the park with this one.
As for the speech itself, it was embarrassing.
DeShabbos: We believe jamming gender ideology in schools is wrong. Disney obviously supported shoving gender ideology in schools.
I’d reverse what Biden is doing. You should shut the border down. You should not be entertaining these asylum claims for people crossing illegally.
We will never surrender to the woke mob, and we will leave woke ideology in the dustbin of history.
DeSantis is such a faggot that I find it quite difficult to give any sort of long form analysis of the man. He is so obviously given the role of getting out in front of White People/heterosexuals and making sure that we get absolutely nothing, and he has less than zero charisma to boot.
Twitter‘s head of engineering announced on Thursday that he was resigning, the day after the disastrous attempts to launch Ron DeSantis‘ presidential campaign on the platform.
Foad Dabiri tweeted: ‘After almost four incredible years at Twitter, I decided to leave the nest yesterday.
‘The combination of the fantastic community, the impact it has, and its limitless potential sets Twitter apart.’
He did not go into detail about why he was leaving.
His company was left highly embarrassed by Wednesday night’s debacle, which saw Twitter unable to live-stream the audio of DeSantis’s campaign launch, and a hot mic discussion with Twitter’s owner Elon Musk and moderator David Sacks.
Musk and Sacks said the problems were due to ‘server strain’ and ‘melting the servers’, claiming that it was the largest event ever hosted online – but many pointed out that far larger events had been held without a hitch.
Elon Musk might be the single most overrated person in all the world. He’s a “visionary,” whose visions never pan out, which is a fancy way of saying that he’s just full of shit. His cars suck, his Tesla truck was a total failure, and he doesn’t even talk about his failed corporations anymore, such as his “Boring Company,” or the solar panel rooftops.
I remember reading puff pieces over a decade ago about the guy, bloviating about how hard he worked. Now the entire world can see that’s not true, since he spends about 14 hours a day memeing on twatter. Despite the time he puts into edgelording on the platform, it still sucks even in an apolitical sense.
When Gov. Ron DeSantis launches his presidential bid in a conversation with Elon Musk on Twitter Wednesday evening, the two will be joined by DeSantis supporter and Jewish tech entrepreneur David Sacks.
Musk had the opportunity to turn twatter into an actual free speech platform. Instead, he’s increased the censorship on all of us, dogwhistled occasionally on behalf of Republicans, and teamed up with (((David Sacks))) to promote DeShabbos’ made in Israel presidential campaign.
It’s difficult to find the motivation to cover the news when it’s all so fake and gay.
Not much to add here except “Muskrat and greasy ball challenge Rump’t for Clown Title of Transparent fake polarity over the next Erection”…… or something…..
Musk is a mischling kike JUST like orange bagel nigger Trump.
[…] Interesting! Ron DeShabbos’ Twitter Presidential Announcement Ends in Total Embarassment […]
“Foad Dabiri” – i think i can see the source of the problem
Overwhelming a server with faux service requests, oftentimes coming from a huge bot network, is the rationale behind ‘denial of service’ attacks — so that’s what it may have been: overwhelmed servers — insufficient network capacity — it could also have been some other problem, maybe something with the technical scheme or design for this large scale event.
The censorship (‘content moderation’) issues at Twitter, including how the company cooperated with the deep state, got a lot of attention — but behind that whole scene, Twitter is actually a serious technical company, or decided to become one some years ago — they did the network architecture for, then built, and now run their own set of distributed data centers around the world — here is a post about that on Twitter’s technical blog:
“The Infrastructure Behind Twitter: Scale”
[We started to migrate from third party hosting in early 2010, which meant we had to learn how to build and run our infrastructure internally, and with limited visibility into the core infrastructure needs, we began iterating through various network designs, hardware, and vendors.
By late 2010, we finalized our first network architecture which was designed to address the scale and service issues we encountered in the hosted colo. …
Fast forward a few years and we were running a network with POPs on five continents and data centers with hundreds of thousands of servers. …]
It’s too bad Twitter was run by people more concerned with censorship, rather than being a first class technical company offering a solid, versatile platform for content creation and free expression.
It’s also too bad Musk has not done enough to move past the censorship stage and more in the direction of free expression.
DeSantis is similar to RFK Jr: if your political focus is narrow enough, you may find him attractive as a candidate — personally, I’m not interested — so assuming it was a network capacity issue, I’m not one of the people responsible for that.
>Musk has not done enough to move past the censorship stage
[What Is A Woman streams tonight at 8 ET. Elon says that the decision to label the film hate speech was a “mistake by many people at Twitter.” But currently the clips from the film are still flagged and censored and all trends related to What Is A Woman are still being suppressed.]
Obviously Musk cannot be involved in all facets of the day-to-day operation of Twitter.
But just as obviously, he has not removed enough of the people who were behind censorship there — apparently he has also not established clear rules and policies about that — and all of those things were and are definitely doable, as is firing at least some of ‘many people at Twitter’ responsible for this ‘mistake’.
Since I already know what a woman is, I won’t be watching.

“Twitter trust and safety chief Ella Irwin resigns”
Here she is on LinkedIn:
A very curious CV — modest/mediocre (at best) academic background — then suddenly goes from being a ‘call center manager’ to being a VP at JP Morgan — how the hell does that happen? — and from there it is one executive position after the other.
Unbelievable how some seem to be anointed for success.
