Decentralized Twitter Is [Kinda] Here.
Bluesky, backed by Jack Dorsey, has been rolling out to users in private beta mode recently. It is some coincidence however that Twitter was down around the same time the launch was announced.
Will decentralized Twitter work? Does it need to be decentralized? Should we move away from the Twitter model altogether? We suspect these are the kind of questions that will be raised as it rolls out to new batches of users over the coming weeks and months.
The app is available on the app store however you can only gain access via an invite. CEO, Jay Graber said: "We really are still in beta, but DM me if you want an invite!"
Worth a shot? You let us know. We can even include your story and product feedback in our next email.
