It did not go as planned—but perhaps it unfolded as expected for critics of the pair and the chaotic changes unfolding on the social network.

It took plenty of minutes for speech to become intelligible, and even then, it was halting and echoed badly. Technical difficulties burned up next to 20 minutes.

“We’ve got so numerous people here that I think we are kind of melting the servers, which is a good sign,” host David Sacks said.
