New Delhi: Following Musk’s announcement, Bluesky had a total of 53,585 additional sign-ups in a single day, 5% of the platform’s approximately 1.13 million accounts’ user base.
Bluesky’s Android app had half a million daily active users, and its online traffic jumped even more, according to statistics from analytics company Similarweb.
In contrast to other platforms like Mastodon or Instagram Threads, Bluesky continually gains from X’s losses. Bluesky saw a considerable increase in popularity, solidifying its position as a prominent rival to X, while Meta’s new Twitter clone, Threads, maintained consistent daily active user numbers.
Bluesky, which remains invite-only, briefly stopped accepting new users because of the excessive bandwidth brought on by the increase in demand. The platform’s user base may have increased even faster if registration was available to the general public. Despite earlier failed chances like Musk’s acquisition of Twitter and X’s numerous issues, Bluesky appears less concerned with seizing these openings and more focused on offering a top-notch user experience.
Musk revealed that X has surpassed Bluesky and other competing platforms like Threads and Mastodon with a stunning 550 million monthly active users. However, current market trends show a fall in X’s weekly active users and a rise in Twitter Lite uptake, possibly as a result of user uncertainty about the renaming. Even X changed its App Store description to include the words “formerly Twitter” rather than the less powerful slogan “Blaze your glory” in order to improve its ranks in the App Store search.
While the X app is undergoing different revisions, Musk must contend with several difficulties along the road since the software never escapes controversy.
if Musk continues to “sabotage” X whenever he speaks about his portal, the subscription numbers reading might very well result in a complete exodus.
However, even after switching from Twitter to X, the user base of X is continuously growing.
