Musk and DeSantis will host an event on Twitter Spaces, the sites platform for audio chats, on Wednesday, May 24 at 6 p.m which will be moderated by David Sacks, a tech entrepreneur who is a Musk confidant and DeSantis supporter.On Wednesday evening, May 24, the campaign will release a launch video, and DeSantis will begin visiting several early states after Memorial Day.The announcement could be a significant boost for DeSantis by giving him an introduction to, and credibility with, Musks massive following including his 140 million Twitter followers.Musk has been an admirer of DeSantis. Last year, Musk said he would support the governor if he were to run for president. During the Wall Street Journals 2023 CEO Summit Council on Tuesday, Musk confirmed his participation in DeSantis’ announcement but said he was not going to be formally endorsing DeSantis at that time.I think its quite groundbreaking that there be a major announcement of this type on social media, he said, adding that he was not going to endorse any particular candidate for president quite yet.Announcing on Twitter is perfect for Ron DeSantis, a Trump adviser told NBC News when asked about the announcement in a text message. This way he doesnt have to interact with people and the media cant ask him any questions.
