When Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held a press conference to announce his candidacy for the US presidential election, it was crashed by rude tweets from an anonymous source. The Twitter account, posing as the Florida Governor, posted a series of tweets that included offensive language and racist comments.
The incident caused a huge backlash against DeSantis and embarrassed his campaign team who issued an immediate apology. They quickly deactivated the account and are working to track down the person responsible.
It is unclear whether the embarrassing tweets will have an effect on DeSantis’ campaign as the incident has been widely covered by the media. However, it is apparent that the team must now take more measures to ensure the safety and security of their Twitter accounts.
