Bluesky Temporarily Halts Sign-Ups Due to Overwhelming User Influx from Twitter

Bluesky, a decentralized social network resembling Twitter, has temporarily suspended new sign-ups to address performance issues

Bluesky, a decentralized social network resembling Twitter, has temporarily suspended new sign-ups to address performance issues that arose following Twitter’s implementation of tweet viewing limits. Despite the requirement of an invite code for joining Bluesky, the surge in new users has posed challenges.

In a recent announcement, Bluesky stated, “We will temporarily be pausing Bluesky sign-ups while our team continues to resolve the existing performance issues. We’ll keep you updated when invite codes will resume functionality. We’re excited to welcome more users to our beta soon!”

Currently, Bluesky’s status page indicates “degraded performance,” with initial reports of issues appearing at 1:47 PM ET. Although posts still load on the web, they often take an extended duration. The iOS app offers a relatively smoother experience.

At 2:03 PM ET, Bluesky acknowledged “record-high traffic” in a post and mentioned ongoing mobile app updates aimed at resolving the problems, as mentioned by Bluesky engineer Paul Frazee.

The challenges on Twitter surfaced on Friday when the platform began blocking unregistered users, a move Elon Musk, the owner, described as a “temporary emergency measure” due to excessive data exploitation negatively impacting regular users. On Saturday, Musk announced new limitations on the number of tweets users can view per day.

Notably, Mastodon, another social networking platform, has also witnessed a significant surge in user sign-ups. According to a tracker, over 26,000 new accounts have been created on Mastodon in the past day.
