What’s Up With Twitter?

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign announcement on Twitter did not go as planned. A series of awkward technical glitches delayed the event for about 20 minutes.

In fact, Desantis’ announcement is just one example of how the social media platform has changed since Elon Musk took over the company.

NPR’s Eric Deggans talks with writer Charlie Warzel, who has covered the platform for 15 years, about his latest piece in The Atlantic, “Twitter is a Far Right Social Network.”
