Twitter’s co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jack Dorsey launched an alternative to Twitter today. He launched a new application called ‘Bluesky’ on Android, which will serve as an alternative to the microblogging platform now owned by Elon Musk.
As per the app’s website, the social internet of the future will give users more options and creators independence from platforms. However, the app is under development and may only be accessed with an invite code.
“We’re building the AT Protocol, a new foundation for social networking which gives creators independence from platforms, developers the freedom to build, and users a choice in their experience,” the website states.
Reportedly, Mr. Dorsey started developing Bluesky as a side project in 2019. In late February, it was first rolled out to iOS users. Presently, the app has over 20,000 active users.
