Twitter founder Jack Dorsey to launch new social network

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has announced that he will launch a new social network app called BlueSky Social. The new ‘decentralised’ social network’ will seek to ‘reclaim’ user data.

According to a blog post, the app is in private beta testing and will be made available to the public soon. While not much information is available about the upcoming app, the company announced to the public its new revamped “AT Protocol” (Authenticated Transfer Protocol) which will be an improvement from the previous ADX Protocol . This tech will be the underlying technology powering BlueSky.

The company said, “The ‘AT Protocol’ is a new federated social network. It integrates ideas from the latest decentralized technologies into a simple, fast, and open network”.

BlueSky claims that it will enable users to move between a number of social platforms with just one high-quality browser in its app. This will let users control what they see and how much data is provided to social platforms (algorithmic choice).

According to Futurism, the company could be using web3 to achieve this performance in the network.

Additionally, BlueSky promises its users that AT Protocol will ensure anonymity for unaccountable cooperations owning a person’s online identity. Accounts, however, can be moved from one provider to another without data or social graph loss.

The app is going through private beta testing, while the company iterates protocol specs and shares details on the process.
