The founder and former Chief Executive Officer of Twitter Inc, Jack Dorsey, has launched a new social media platform called “Bluesky.”
This is coming just a week after Elon Musk, a business magnate and investor, purchased Twitter.
Within two days of the announcement, over 30,000 people had signed up for beta testing of the new app, which is still in its early stages.
Bluesky is said to give creators independence from platforms and developers, as well as the freedom to design, allowing users to customise their experience by giving them control over their algorithms.
Tesla founder, Elon Musk had completed his $44billion takeover of Twitter, taking control of the company and firing several of the executives including the CEO, Parag Agrawal.
Multiple outlets reported last Thursday that Musk had finalised the deal, capping a chaotic saga that began when the billionaire first announced his plans to purchase the company in April. While there was no official statement from Musk, he tweeted “the bird is freed”.
