Jack Dorsey Quits Bluesky Board; Musk Praises 'Freedom Tech'

Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, recently announced his resignation from the board of his social networking startup, Bluesky. This decision comes in the midst of an impromptu endorsement of Elon Musk’s X, where Dorsey referred to Musk’s creation as ‘freedom technology.’

Dorsey shared his resignation from Bluesky in an X post, responding with a simple ‘no’ when questioned about his position on the board. In the same post, he emphasized the importance of ‘open protocols,’ which are open-source software codes allowing public viewing and suggestions, similar to blockchain technology.

The relationship between Dorsey and Musk seems to be on the mend, as indicated by Dorsey’s positive remarks towards Musk’s endeavors after previously expressing doubts about Musk’s ownership of Twitter.

Dorsey’s Bluesky initiative, founded in 2019 with funding from Twitter, aims to create a ‘social internet’ that provides users with more choices and liberates them from conventional platforms. Despite its promising vision, Bluesky has faced challenges, particularly with the overshadowing presence of Meta’s Threads as a competing alternative to X.

Bluesky differs from traditional social media platforms by offering users ‘algorithmic choice,’ enabling individuals to personalize their content feed. Musk’s ambition for X is to develop an ‘everything app’ akin to China’s WeChat, combining various digital features like instant messaging, social media, and mobile payments.

Despite Dorsey’s exit from Bluesky’s board, his ongoing interest in innovative technology remains evident, as seen through his support for Musk’s ‘freedom technology’ concept. The evolving dynamics between these tech visionaries continue to shape the landscape of social networking and digital innovation.
