Jack Dorsey Creates Twitter Alternative Bluesky

Jack Dorsey, along with Jeremie Miller, the inventor of the communication protocol Jabber/XMPP, and Jay Graber, CEO of Bluesky, are board members creating the Twitter alternative Bluesky.

Jack Dorsey is taking another whack at a Twitter-like service with a new social media platform called Bluesky.

The service is gaining traction among Twitter power users, attracting prominent personalities including U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Bluesky, which bears similarities to the blue bird platform, is the latest in a long list of apps that are looking to steal Twitter’s thunder after Elon Musk’s chaotic takeover of the company.

Here are some details on the service:

What is Bluesky?

It’s a text-focused social media service launched for select users in February. Users can post short messages of up to 300 characters, and pictures. There is no support for videos and direct messages, or DMs, so far.

Bluesky runs on a decentralized framework, similar to social network Mastodon. It allows users to build independent social media experiences and users can join a specific “server”, which has its own unique set of rules, interests and participants.

According to a recent tweet by Elon Musk, Twitter users can now monetize “any material” and keep all profits for 12 months.
