War of clones: Bluesky reports 300,000 new accounts in a week
After controversial changes in direction by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, competitor Bluesky is experiencing a rapid increase in the number of users. Approximately 300,000 people have joined the social media platform in the past week.

Market researcher has calculated that the platform now has around 1.1 million users. Bluesky has been available for a little over four months.

Bluesky was established by, among others, Jack Dorsey, who founded Twitter in 2006. In essence, both services operate in the same way.

Since February, iPhone users have been able to install Bluesky. It became possible to download the service for Android users in April. Membership is by invitation only from Bluesky itself or existing users. It is possible that Bluesky will be opened up later this year, allowing anyone to create an account.

Musk reportedly purchased Twitter last year for over 40 billion euros. Since then, he has been attempting to recoup the money in various ways. Last week, users were informed that they would now have a maximum number of messages they could read per day. The TweetDeck service, where users can view accounts in an organized manner, will only be available for a fee in a few weeks.
