Bluesky, Social Media Project Backed by Jack Dorsey, Gains Momentum

Bluesky has already gained significant traction, with the iOS app being downloaded over 375,000 times and becoming one of the most popular social media apps in the Play Store. The service currently has around 65,000 users, and demand is far outstripping the number of available invites, with codes selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Bluesky’s popularity is partly due to its invitation-only status, which has prevented trolls, bots, and spam from infiltrating the platform and has kept it more usable for high-profile accounts and marginalized individuals.
