Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey leaves board of X competitor Bluesky

| @indiablooms | 06 May 2024, 07:18 pm

Washington/IBNS: The co-founder of Twitter (now known as X), Jack Dorsey, has left the board of Bluesky, the decentralised social media platform he initiated and funded in 2019, reports said.

Confirming Jack's exit, Bluesky on May 5 wrote on the platform that it was "searching for a new board member".

In the post, social network Bluesky also thanked Dorsey for his help and support in starting and funding the project.

"We sincerely thank Jack for his help funding and initiating the bluesky project. Today, Bluesky is thriving as an open source social network running on atproto [AT Protocol], the decentralised protocol we have built," Bluesky's official handle wrote on the platform.

"With Jack's departure, we are searching for a new board member for the Bluesky public benefit company who shares our commitment to building a social network that puts people in control of their experience. More to come," it added.

Meanwhile, hours before Bluesky's post, Jack Dorsey had responded with a curt "no" to another user on X asking if he was still on Bluesky's board.

However, the reasons behind Jack Dorsey's departure from Bluesky board remain unclear as neither Bluesky nor Dorsey explained  the circumstances leading to this decision.
