Elon Musk is ready for another conversation with a presidential hopeful.
On Monday the billionaire will host anti-vaxxer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on a Twitter Spaces call.
It comes just weeks after Republican candidate Ron DeSantis suffered an embarrassing campaign launch on Twitter.
Elon Musk will host outspoken anti-vaxxer Robert F. Kennedy Jr in a virtual call on Twitter as he prepares to take-on President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination for the 2024 election — weeks after Ron DeSantis' catastrophic campaign launch on the platform.
The billionaire Twitter owner will talk to Kennedy — nephew of late president John F. Kennedy — on Monday in a Twitter Spaces event titled "Reclaiming Democracy," marking his second conversation with a presidential candidate on the platform.
The Democratic hopeful has proven to be a controversial figure in recent years, becoming a prominent anti-vaccine campaigner during the COVID-19 pandemic who has likened Anthony Fauci to Adolf Hitler. He has also repeatedly shared false claims about vaccines on his Instagram, which was suspended in 2021, but has since been reinstated.
Kennedy has been backed by a small number of notable figures in the tech industry such as Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey, who tweeted a Fox News clip on Sunday of challenger arguing that he could beat Donald Trump and DeSantis in next year's election.
The conversation comes just weeks after Florida Gov. DeSantis took to Twitter to announce his presidential run in an audio call hosted by Musk and longtime ally David Saacks, which the Twitter owner called "the top story on Earth."
The online event, which was marred by technical glitches that delayed its start by more than 30 minutes, saw DeSantis launch into a lengthy tirade on free speech, with calls to replace "the woke mind virus with reality, facts, and enduring principles."
Kennedy has made similar statements on free speech, suggesting that a "censorship-industrial complex" exists that acts as an "incredibly sophisticated system of information control."
Twitter sent an automated response to Insider's request for comment. Representatives of Kennedy did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment sent outside regular business hours.
