Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has stepped down from the board of Bluesky, the decentralized social network he helped start. This news came quietly amidst discussions about his philanthropic activities. While the reasons behind his departure remain unknown, Bluesky expressed gratitude for Dorsey’s foundational role and financial support. The company is now seeking a new board member who shares its vision of decentralization.

Bluesky, launched in 2019, aimed to offer an alternative to traditional social media platforms like Twitter. Despite this, Dorsey distanced himself from Bluesky, evident from his deletion of his Bluesky account last year. Meanwhile, Dorsey has been active on another social media platform, advocating for the importance of open protocols in the tech landscape. He believes that true innovation and independence can only be achieved through these open standards, rather than relying solely on corporate entities.
