“Then I got interested in Elon Musk and where he was, what he was doing. And then I thought he had a private jet. And that I could follow him myself. But nobody really did. So I started doing it during my free time during COVID,” Sweeney said.

Bluesky is a Dorsey powered Twitter alternative. It was originally incubated on Twitter in 2019, well before Elon Musk took over the company. Since then, Dorsey says Bluesky is a not-for-profit and “an open decentralized social media standard.”
