Ocasio-Cortez took particular issue with entrepreneur David Sacks' claim that the initial audience for DeSantis' Twitter chat broke the internet.

"We had more people join when I played Among Us," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

At one point, the room planned for the DeSantis chat had around 400,000 people. But Sacks and Musk were forced to another Twitter Space amid the glitches.

While Sacks claimed victory, the reality is that other platforms often handle many more listeners or viewers. Travis Scott famously had more than 12 million users join him on Fortnite for a virtual concert, an event that was considered a watershed moment for online gaming.
