Bluesky, Jack Dorsey’s newest Twitter rival, is now accessible in closed beta on the App Store. The invite-only app may soon join a crowded field of impending Twitter rivals, such as Mastodon.
To be added to the waitlist, interested users can enter their email addresses. According to reports, the Bluesky app prominently incorporates Twitter.
What’s up instead of “What’s happening?” and a streamlined process for making posts (which can also include photographs) by selecting a plus button are minor differences. Other than that, it offers well-known functionality like user search, user following, and user post viewing on a Home timeline.
Bluesky Was Launched In 2019 As Twitter-Funded Side Project
2019 saw the launch of Bluesky as a Twitter-funded side project. When the project began, Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter and was still its CEO, saw it as a more open substitute for a Twitter that was becoming more and more centralised.
The new social media platform, Bluesky, is now available on IOS through invite-only.
The project is backed by Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter, and seemingly has a similar interface to Twitter.

Then, in 2021, Bluesky separated to form its own business. According to Dorsey, only authors should have the authority to delete their own social media information and that social media platforms should be free from corporate or governmental control.
Also, he expressed concern about the precedent set by Twitter’s decision to ban Donald Trump following his part in inspiring the uprising on January 6th, even if he called it “the right action.”

It’s unclear whether Twitter users will switch to Bluesky (or other platforms) in sufficient numbers to have a noticeable impact. However, it may be illogical to expect them to flock to a creation of someone who has reservations about banning anyone for any reason, given that many people looking for an alternative are doing so because of current CEO / owner Elon Musk’s headline-grabbing embrace of far-right figures and ideology.
