BlueSky Board no longer has Jack Dorsey

Bluesky’s board member and American entrepreneur Jack Dorsey has left the company. In an answer to a user on the social networking site X, Dorsey announced his departure (previously Twitter).

The posts were made the day after an X user questioned Dorsey about his continued membership on the company’s board. Dorsey simply replied, “No,” without providing any further details. TechCrunch notes that yesterday was a big day for Dorsey, who unfollowed everyone on X save for three profiles and called Elon Musk’s platform “freedom technology.”

Since Dorsey was still listed as a board member in Bluesky’s corporate FAQ as of Sunday morning, it’s unclear when exactly he quit the board. Later on that afternoon, the business released the following news:

We sincerely thank Jack for his help funding and initiating the bluesky project. Today, Bluesky is thriving as an open source social network running on atproto, the decentralized protocol we have built.

With Jack’s departure, we are searching for a new board member for the Bluesky public benefit company who shares our commitment to building a social network that puts people in control of their experience. More to come!

When Dorsey was still the CEO of Twitter in 2019, he made the initial announcement about Bluesky. “Financing a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media,” he said, referring to Twitter (now X).

Following that, Bluesky transformed into a stand-alone public benefit corporation under the direction of CEO Jay Graber, supported by venture capital, and it opened to the public in February.

Coming back to X, Dorsey had a busy weekend. Apart from sharing business-related updates, he has also commented on the rivalry between Drake and Kendrick Lamar, unfollowed almost all accounts, and shared a message saying, “Don’t rely on corporations to grant you rights.” You are on one, therefore use freedom technology to defend them yourself.
