Former Twitter Boss, Jack Dorsey, has launched a new social media platform, “Bluesky” to compete with Twitter.
This is happening after Elon Musk acquired the micro-blogging and social networking service, “Twitter” for $44 million.
The acquisition process started in April and was finalized on October 27, 2022.
Jack hinted on the Bluesky initiative in 2019 on Twitter. He wrote:
“Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard.
“We’re calling this team @bluesky. Our CTO @ParagA will be running point to find a lead, who will then hire and direct the rest of the team. Please follow or DM @bluesky if you’re interested in learning more or joining!”.
What Bluesky does is develop a decentralized protocol, such that different social media platforms can communicate with each other.
30,000 users have already signed up to use the app.
