However, after being unable to start an account with the @teamkennedy username on Meta-owned Instagram, the aspiring POTUS took to Twitter to share his disappointment and wrote, "Interesting… when we use our TeamKennedy email address to set up @instagram accounts we get an automatic 180-day ban. Can anyone guess why that’s happening?"  

"Interesting… when we use our TeamKennedy email address to set up @instagram accounts we get an automatic 180-day ban. Can anyone guess why that’s happening?" he added.

Shortly after his tweet, Twitter owner Elon Musk made him an offer for a live interview. Kennedy Jr., who came all the way from his home state of California to Boston to announce his candidacy, did not waste a minute and said yes.

This is expected to take RFK Jr.'s presidential campaign to the next level, thanks to the massive 142 million follower base of Elon Musk.
