What Is Bluesky?
Bluesky app is an alternative to Twitter. It aims to create a decentralized social media protocol that allows multiple social networks to interact via a single application. Each network on the app has its own curation and moderation system.
The App Store describes Bluesky as “Find your scene, post what’s new, and stay connected.” Two screenshots from the app look exactly like Twitter. We can see retweet and heart options, Home and Notification icons, and a personal profile that displays following, followers, and a number of posts. However, we are unsure if the developers will change the app’s aesthetic before it goes public.
