The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The head of Twitter's engineering operations has resigned after the platform's hosting of Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis' glitch-plagued 2024 presidential campaign launch.
"After almost four incredible years at Twitter, I decided to leave the nest yesterday," Twitter's Foad Dabiri tweeted. "The combination of the fantastic community, the impact it has, and its limitless potential sets Twitter apart."
He said Elon Musk's purchase in October of Twitter made work "challenging," but he did not go into detail about why he was leaving, according to the Daily Mail.
Twitter on Wednesday night was unable to live-stream the audio of DeSantis's campaign launch.
Musk said the problems were due to "server strain."
