Bluesky Now Lets Anyone Join – But Will People Sign Up?

Co-founder and former CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey is a backer of Bluesky, a microblogging network that was introduced last year. Bluesky was only available via invitation for more than a year because it was still considered a beta platform. Bluesky is now allowing users to join the social network at last, but it might already be too late.

Bluesky No Longer Needs Invitations

Bluesky has updated its app so that people no longer need an invitation to create an account. Before, if you wanted to use Bluesky you had to request an invitation or get one from someone already using it. Now anyone can download the Bluesky app and sign up.

Jay Graber, the CEO of Bluesky, said they wanted the invitation-only access so they had time to improve tools like moderating posts and making the network run smoothly before letting everyone join. Graber also said over 3 million people signed up since Bluesky started in early 2023, with 1.6 million using it every month.

How Bluesky Works

Bluesky works a lot like Twitter – you can follow accounts and see their recent posts. But you can also see other timelines with suggested content or make your own feed of things you want to see.

Competition From Other Apps

While Bluesky was working on its app, other social networks grew a lot bigger. Meta launched Threads which already has over 160 million users. Mastodon is also still popular, especially with new apps like Ivory connecting to it.

It’s not clear if there’s room left for Bluesky now or if it will end up like Clubhouse that lost users. But if you never tried Bluesky before, you can download it for free on the App Store now.
