Decentralized Twitter alternative Bluesky now available on iOS in invite-only beta

Twitter has been under fire for its handling of user data and content moderation practices for years. While the company has made some efforts to improve in these areas, there is still a demand for a more decentralized and transparent social media platform. Enter Bluesky, a project announced by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in 2019 that aims to create an open, decentralized social media protocol.

Bluesky is still in the early stages of development, but the project has made some progress recently. The team behind Bluesky has announced that an invite-only beta of the platform is now available on iOS. This means that a select group of users can now test out the platform and provide feedback to the developers.

Bluesky’s goal is to create a decentralized social media protocol that is not owned or controlled by any single entity. This means that users would have more control over their data and the content they post, and there would be less risk of censorship or manipulation by powerful corporations or governments.

Bluesky is not the only project working on a decentralized social media platform. Mastodon, Diaspora, and other similar projects have been around for several years, but they have yet to gain widespread adoption. Bluesky has an advantage in that it is backed by Twitter, which has a massive user base and a well-established brand.

Bluesky is still in the early stages of development, and there is no word yet on when it will be available to the general public. However, the project is making progress, and it is an exciting development for those who are looking for a more transparent and decentralized social media platform.
