Former Twitter Owner, Jack Dorsey Launches New Social Media Platform Called Bluesky




Barely a week after United States business tycoon and owner of Tesla vehicles, Elon Musk completed his acquisition of the microblogging website, Twitter, the former Cheif Executive Officer (CEO) of the platform, Jack Dorsey, has launched a new social media platform identified as “Bluesky.”

Naija News gathered that the new social media platform Bluesky, which was reported to be in its testing stage has already garnered over 30,000 users in just two days after the announcement of the new app.

Available reports have it that Bluesky gives creators independence from platforms and developers and the freedom to design, allowing users to choose their experience as it gives users control of their algorithms.

Musk acquired the ownership of Twitter for $44 billion on April 14, 2022, and completed it on October 27, 2022.


The development has since put the ‘leading’ social platform on global discourse after the world’s richest man began sacking some top executives, including Parag Agrawal.

Following the takeover, Musk on Thursday evening went online and tweeted that the ‘bird is freed’, referencing Twitter’s iconic avian logo.

Other officials sacked along with Agrawal include the company’s chief financial officer and its head of safety.


It could be recalled that Musk had opted out of the Twitter deal some months ago. The former CEO of the company, however, went to court to hold the Tesla chief to the terms of a deal that has come a long way.

Subsequently, the court gave a deadline for Musk to seal his on-again, off-again deal to purchase the social media network.
