New Delhi. Elon Musk has removed the blue tick from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s Twitter account. Jack has now brought his new micro-blogging platform and Twitter rival called BlueSky to Android users. BlueSky, backed by Dorsey, offers several new features and initially launched in a beta for iOS users in February.
BlueSky aims to give users algorithmic choice and includes basic tools to track likes or bookmarks, edit tweets, quote-tweet, DM, use hashtags, and more.
According to app intelligence firm Data.AI, BlueSky has 240,000 installs on iOS, up 39 percent from March, TechCrunch reported.
The app offers a simplified user interface where you can click on the plus button to create a post of up to 256 characters, which can include photos.
Where Twitter asks ‘What’s up?’, BlueSky asks ‘What’s up?’
BlueSky users can share, mute and block accounts, but advanced tools like adding them to lists are not yet available.
The Search tab in the bottom center of the app’s navigation is useful and provides more ‘who to follow’ suggestions and a feed of recently posted BlueSky updates.
According to the report, “Another tab lets you check your notifications, including likes, reposts, follows and replies, also just like on Twitter. There are no DMs.”
You can discover and follow other people, such as on Twitter, then see their updates in the Home timeline.
User profiles consist of a profile image, background, bio, and metrics.
The BlueSky project started in 2019 with Twitter, but the company was founded in 2022 as an independent company focused on decentralized social network R&D.
After leaving Twitter, Dorsey spoke about BlueSky, describing it as ‘an open decentralized standard for social media’.
BlueSky received $13 million in funding last year with Dorsey on its board.(IANS)
