Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Launches New Social Media Platform

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

Jack Dorsey also helped destroy free speech in the United States.

In May, Jack Dorsey stepped down from the social media giant’s Board effective immediately.

Dorsey was attacked by the Democrats for agreeing with Musk’s opinion that banning former President Donald Trump from the social media platform was a poor decision.

In a statement, he expressed regret for the “business decision.”

Banning Trump from Twitter “was a morally bad decision, to be clear, and foolish in the extreme,” Musk said at a Financial Times conference on Tuesday. Musk was quick to state that former CEO and founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey agreed.

“I do agree,” Dorsey wrote. “There are exceptions (CSE, illegal behavior, spam or network manipulation, etc), but generally permanent bans are a failure of ours and don’t work.”

Dorsey was “partially to blame” for the current state of our internet today and claimed that he regrets it.

“The days of usenet, irc, the web…even email (w PGP)…were amazing. centralizing discovery and identity into corporations really damaged the internet. I realize I’m partially to blame, and regret it,” Dorsey said in his tweet.

Now, the former CEO is launching a new social media platform called “Bluesky.”

CNBC reported:

Bluesky is a public benefit corporation trying to build a new “open and decentralised” form of social media. The platform aims to create a standard protocol for social media platforms. Once fully developed, it would allow separate social media networks to interact with each other via an open standard, despite each network having its own curation and moderation systems.

Bluesky was conceived as the solution to the failures of Twitter. It was announced at a time when social media networks were being accused of data misappropriation, misinformation and election interference. In fact, Jack Dorsey introduced the project in a Twitter thread that justified the ban of Donald Trump on the platform.

“We are trying to do our part by funding an initiative around an open decentralised standard for social media. Our goal is to be a client of that standard for the public conversation layer of the internet. We call it Bluesky,” read Dorsey’s tweet.

Essentially, Bluesky was created and funded by its parent company, Twitter, and the goal was for Twitter to eventually adopt the technology. To that extent, Bluesky received $13 million in funding from Twitter, with no conditions or commitments except to keep the research going.

Bluesky’s leading proponent, Jack Dorsey, is no longer part of Twitter. Moreover, Elon Musk recently fired Dorsey’s successor, Parag Agrawal. As such, Bluesky has officially lost two of its biggest supporters from within Twitter. This means that future support from the microblogging website would be minimal, if any at all.
However, leaked conversations between Musk and Dorsey paint a different picture. The Tesla CEO is said to have called Bluesky a “super interesting idea” and expressed his desire to help if he could. Dorsey reciprocated that positivity when Musk’s Twitter takeover was announced. “Elon is the singular solution I trust… this is the right path. I believe it with all my heart,” he said.
This could point to future collaboration between the two. However, Bluesky is still a long way from being a complete product, and only time will tell how things actually shape up.

    They should have made him sign a non-compete agreement when he departed Twitter. But now maybe he can hire all the later off Twitter twits.
