Twitter Is Helping To Build An Alternative To Twitter

Dorsey is moving fast to avoid extinction. The Internet was always meant to
be decentralised until hyperscalers hacked that part and ultimately
centralised parts of it in disguise.

If the so called buesky is some sort of evolution from the current
centralised design then the best approach would be to make it distributed
so that no single monopoly or duopoly can invoke a #noflyzone over the
digital bluesky.
