Jack Dorsey quits Bluesky board on decentralized social network


Jack Dorsey has resigned from his position as Twitter board member after supporting and sponsoring Bluesky during his tenure as CEO.

Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and former CEO of the decentralized social media site Bluesky, has resigned from his position on the board.

In a post on May 5, Bluesky acknowledged Dorsey’s departure, said that it was “looking for a new board member,” and expressed gratitude for Dorsey’s assistance in initiating and securing funds for the project.

Dorsey had answered an X user’s question on his status on Bluesky’s board with a brusque “no” a few hours earlier.

The original investor of Bluesky was also active on X, where he promoted his open interest protocol awards and referred to the social network that Elon Musk now owns as “freedom technology.”

X account for monitoring the social media activity of IT industry executives Dorsey had whittled his follow list down to three individuals: Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor, Stella Assange, who is the wife of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and Musk. This occurred after Dorsey unfollowed “far over 2000 people,” according to Big Tech Alert.

The fact that Dorsey still follows Musk and that X is endorsing him are clues that they may have patched things up.

According to TechCrunch, Dorsey criticized Musk on Bluesky in April 2023, claiming that the board had no right to push the sale to Musk since he was mismanaging X.

During his tenure as Twitter CEO, Dorsey made the announcement about Bluesky in late 2019. He wrote that the company was “supporting a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to establish an open and decentralized standard for social media.”

After a delayed test launch in March 2023, Bluesky finally opened to the public on February 7, 2024. It claims to have about 5.6 million users.
