Dorsey was the founder of Twitter, which was renamed as X by its billionaire buyer Elon Musk. The parting of ways of Dorsey with Twitter was bitter amid claim of bots employed at the social media platform to inflate the data of the users and also the valuations.

Bloomberg in a report had previously said that Blue Sky had seen over 3,60,000 downloads in the Apple’s App store while millions were on the wait list when the platform was in an invite-only mode. Blue Sky announced on Tuesday that it went past million plus downloads after going public. in a report has said that Blue Sky had over 3.5 million downloads from February last year while the social media platform went public only on Tuesday.

X is said to have 2,50,000 downloads on a daily basis, and Blue Sky appears fast catching up with its giant rival. Musk after taking over Twitter had unveiled a set of new norms to monetize the platform. The verification on X is to be paid for while users have to buy subscriptions to access premium features.  

Blue Sky claims to decentralize the social media platform. Techcrunch in a report said that Blue Sky gained over 8,00,000 new users in a single day after going public. It also said that Blue Sky has an open source development mode to allow transparency in ways it has been programmed.
