In 2019, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey announced the formation of a working group within the company to research and create a decentralized social media protocol called Bluesky. The Bluesky initiative announced the introduction of the AT Protocol in October 2022 along with a project roadmap after Dorsey left Twitter.

In the wake of Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter, the Bluesky group confirmed that it was independent from the social media site, and has been a public benefit limited liability company since February. Let's learn more about it.

What is Bluesky? 

On the surface, Bluesky is a platform that resembles Twitter in terms of appearance and functions, albeit in a more straightforward way. Users can establish profiles and publish text and images on Bluesky. However, the true difference lies under the hood. The Bluesky project is about constructing the back-end interface that will allow any social site to link in, rather than building a social platform like Twitter or Facebook, so users may maintain their identity and connections across services.


A decentralized network would enable consumers to compare platforms and choose the ones with the greatest user interfaces or content moderation options, eliminating their dependence on certain service providers and granting them more control over how their data is used.

How to get an invite code for Bluesky?

1. To get an invite code for Bluesky, just head over to the website and scroll down to the bottom.       2. Click on the ‘Sign up for the Bluesky private beta’ and you will be taken to a page. Here, enter your email address, and tap on ‘Join Waitlist’.

3. While the Bluesky website lets users join the waitlist, it gives no information on how many testers the network will initially be available to or when it will be open to the general public.

4. Alternatively, you can also get a Bluesky invite by searching on social media like Twitter or Facebook and hoping that someone shares their code with you. However, if you come across someone who claims to have an invite code and asks you to pay for it, better be aware as it might be a scam.
