Bluesky, the open-source Twitter alternative, is set to revolutionize moderation by allowing users to run their own moderation services.

This move follows a surge in growth, with 2 million new users joining since February, expanding the community to over 5 million.

For example, someone could make a moderation service that blocks photos of spiders from Bluesky — let’s call it the Spider Shield,

the company explains.

If you get a jump scare from seeing spiders in your otherwise peaceful nature feed, you could install this moderation service and immediately any labeled spider pictures would disappear from your experience.

Users will now have the ability to subscribe to third-party labeling services for tailored moderation. Bluesky's approach aims to create an ecosystem where users can customize their experiences, with options like the "Spider Shield" to filter out specific content.

The company is open-sourcing its collaborative labeling tool, Ozone, enabling groups of moderators to respond to reports and label content. These third-party labeling services will roll out on the desktop version of Bluesky soon, with more options expected.
