Bluesky, the decentralized social network often called an alternative to Twitter, announced that it has temporarily stopped signing up new users due to performance issues caused by a sharp increase in the number of users who switched from Twitter.

This decision was made after Twitter imposed limits on the number of tweets users can view per day, which caused a significant inflow of users seeking a freer platform.

In a statement, Bluesky acknowledged the ongoing performance issues and expressed its commitment to resolving them:

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!

The surge in users looking for alternative platforms has also benefited Mastodon, another decentralized social network. According to the tracker, more than 26,000 new accounts signed up for Mastodon in the last day, indicating a growing interest in alternative social networking platforms.
