Bluesky, Twitter alternative, expands into Android

Jack Dorsey, the former CEO of Twitter, has launched Bluesky. Reported to be an alternative platform to Twitter, the social media platform has finally expanded into Android devices, greatly promoting its reach. It comes after an initial launch on iOS devices in February of this year.

Jack Dorsey has been said to have had a lot of problems with the direction of Twitter long before Elon Musk was in the conversation, and it seems he’s taking another stab at the idea to do it right.

As per the Bluesky website: “We’re focusing on re-building the social web by connecting disconnected silos and returning control of the social experience to users. Our mission is to develop and drive the adoption of technologies for open and decentralized public conversation.”

When the concept was launched, Dorsey outlined three key focus areas of Bluesky, made up of:

  • To facilitate enhanced efforts to address abuse and misleading information
  • To enable users and the broader community to have more input into platform algorithms
  • To improve conversational health by giving people more input into platform rules

According to Social Media Today: “Given that various former tweeps are working on it, it makes sense that Bluesky feels very Twitter-esque – and again, with more people now seeking an alternative, it could be the right time for Bluesky to rise, and gather-up cast-offs from its former parent app.”
