Jack Dorsey Wants A More Decentralized Twitter Alternative
With Elon Musk’s internal inquiry revealing censorship-related difficulties on Twitter, the former CEO Jack Dorsey has advocated for a free and open protocol for social media.
Dorsey has argued that investing in public chat tools is a mistake, the main thing should be user-oriented.
“The biggest mistake I made was continuing to invest in building tools for us to manage the public conversation versus building tools for the people using Twitter to easily manage it for themselves. This company with too much power, and opened us to significant outside pressure (such as advertising budgets).”
Dorsey outlined several potential remedies to Twitter’s current difficulties in the post.
“I’m a strong believer that any content produced by someone for the internet should be permanent until the original author chooses to delete it. It should be always available and addressable. Content takedowns and suspensions should not be possible.”
Dorsey also posted a GitHub link to a censorship-resistant open protocol that is presently being developed in a tweet. “Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted” is a project that intends to enable the establishment of decentralized social networks based on cryptographic keys and signatures.
According to the former Twitter CEO, this includes making it resistant to corporate or government control, granting sole authority to the original author to remove information, and adopting moderation by algorithmic decision.
Dorsey also revealed additional Bluesky Social projects on October 18. There will be no entity that can decide what is published on the site.
