How to sign up to Bluesky

Bluesky Social has taken the internet by storm as a potential rival to Twitter.

The new social media platform is currently in beta, but that hasn’t stopped big names like Chrissy Teigen and New York representative Alexandria Ocasico-Cortez from signing up already.

If you do want to join Bluesky, you will need to sign up for the waitlist or use an invite code from anyone that is already an active user. Since the platform is still in beta you cannot create an account immediately, but there’s no harm in signing up.
