You know that Jack Dorsey stepped down from the post of CEO of Twitter in November last year. However, Jack Dorsey is rumored to be joining Twitter again. But to put these rumors to rest, Jack Dorsey has now launched a social media site to rival Twitter, called Blue Sky.
Dorsey’s Blue Sky site was designed to resemble the Twitter blue logo and color tone. This Blue Sky is now available in beta version on Apple App Store. In this regard, TechCrunch has also provided some details. Accordingly, the Blue Sky app will be available as a beta only to select users on the App Store. It is expected to be available for general use soon.
The Blue Sky platform is designed with a simple look and feel just like regular Twitter. Also comes with simple options, easy to see. Like What’s Happening on Twitter’s home page, it also includes the phrase “What’s Up”.
In November last year, there were massive layoffs at Twitter. Some did not like the actions of Elon Musk and resigned voluntarily.
After that, Elon Musk promised that there would be no more layoffs. But even then, there were several rounds of deletions on Twitter. The company, which previously had over 7,500 employees, now has just 2,000 employees.
The Blue Sky app was released on February 17 and has been installed on more than 2000 devices in the testing phase. Just like on Twitter, Blue Sky users can block, share, follow and mute others. Also there is a possibility to add more people. Apart from that, users also get “who to follow” recommendations.
Blue Sky was built entirely to compete with Twitter. It is reported that the employees involved are also ex-employees of Twitter. This app will soon replace Twitter with 2 thousand downloads in a single week.
