Just hours after Twitter Spaces failed to host Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis’s 2024 GOP presidential primary campaign launch without hiccups, Twitter’s Director of Engineering Foad Dabiri announced his resignation.
The announcement came via tweet Thursday, but said his resignation came Wednesday night — which is when DeSantis’ Twitter Space event failed to launch within about 25 minutes from its scheduled time.
The new Musk-owned version of Twitter helped DeSantis launch his bid for the Republican presidential nomination Wednesday. Though it was marred by technical glitches and skewered by the candidate’s critics, the forum nevertheless underscored Twitter’s unmistakable shift away from the Democrat machine under Musk, who bought it for $44 billion and took over in October.
