However, what about the ex-owners, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and co? It turns out he is not sitting idly by. He has launched a new beta test of a social media platform called Bluesky.

Bluesky To Enter The Already Choked-up Social Media World

As we can read on the Bluesky website, they are currently looking for users for beta testing. Dorsey said: “As we beta test, we’ll continue to iterate on the protocol specs and share details about how it works. When it’s ready, we’ll move to the open beta, sharing a link to sign up for the beta test’s waitlist.”

In fact, the Twitter co-founder is going to launch Bluesky soon officially. It will be a great alternative for those who dislike the deal between Twitter and Elon Musk. Moreover, apart from Twitter, Bluesky will also be a good option for those who do not like Facebook and Instagram.

In late 2019, Dorsey founded Bluesky. The latter is considered a decentralized social media platform. By the way, initially, Twitter also provided start-up capital for Bluesky.

Bluesky is based on the “AT Protocol” (Authenticated Transport Protocol). This is a new federated social network that many websites run. The protocol allows users to choose among providers, individuals, or businesses to self-host.

As a decentralized network, the AT protocol operates independently. Thus, it doesn’t depend on any company’s wishes. This independence ought to protect users’ private data.

The next step is to test the AT protocol. Bluesky explained that developing such a distributed protocol is a tricky process. Also, it requires coordination among multiple parties once the network goes live.
