The Founder and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has created a new social platform called ‘Bluesky.’

This is coming barely one week after the United States’ richest billionaire, Elon Musk acquired Twitter with a whopping $44 billion.

However, while Musk is busy resetting the microblogging website including the speculation to sack half of the workers, Dorsey has concluded plans to launch a new site with over 30,000 people signing up for Bluesky within two days of the announcement.

According to Insider, Dorsey announced the launching of Bluesky and revealed that the new app will offer “a new foundation for social networking which gives creators independence from platforms, developers the freedom to build, and users a choice in their experience.”

Dorsey said in 2019 that Twitter was funding work into developing “an open and decentralized standard for social media.”
