Twitter co-founder is no longer part of Bluesky's board

Jack Dorsey, one of Twitter's co-founders and a major backer of Bluesky, is no longer part of the latter's board of directors. Some recent situations indicated that something was going on around Dorsey and the social platform. However, it has now been officially confirmed that they have broken up.

Jack Dorsey said goodbye to Bluesky

Bluesky announced the departure of Jack Dorsey And Thank you him for his support. The company mail says: “We sincerely thank Jack for his help in financing and initiating the bluesky project. Today, Bluesky thrives as an open-source social network running on atproto, the decentralized protocol we built.” It also confirms that they are looking for a new board member “who shares our commitment to building a social network that puts people in control of their experience.”

Before that, Dorsey himself had confirmed the divorce. A user had asked him on X/Twitter if he was still part of Bluesky, to which he replied with a curt “no.” Neither the Twitter co-founder nor Bluesky provided more specific details about the reasons for his resignation from the board. In another post on X, Dorsey described Elon Musk's platform as 'freedom technology'.

The Twitter co-founder joined Bluesky's board in 2022

From the beginning, Jack Dorsey was a key player in publicizing Bluesky. The project was created in 2019 with the support of Twitter. The main goal was to provide a decentralized, open-source social platform. Later (2022), Bluesky became 'independent' through venture capital backing, and opened to the general public in February this year with no waiting lists.

It is notable that Jack Dorsey deleted his Bluesky account last year. However, it was not the only one, as his Instagram account also went offline. Yet he remained the main face of the project. But it is possible that he has not participated particularly actively in decision-making for some time. In an interview with The Verge, Jay Graber (CEO of Bluesky) said that she only occasionally received some feedback from Dorsey.
