Twitter CEO is planning to make the social media platform decentralized. Jack Dorsey is putting together a team of five people that will work on making the social media platform decentralized. Dorsey tweeted that “the goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard.”
Finally, new technologies have emerged to make a decentralized approach more viable. Blockchain points to a series of decentralized solutions for open and durable hosting, governance, and even monetization. Much work to be done, but the fundamentals are there.

Decentralized Twitter is a long term goal.
The CEO in a series of tweets revealed that building a decentralized twitter would not happen overnight and might take years. He also mentioned all the problems that the current social media platform is facing, including hate speech, an algorithm that promotes more controversial content. With new technology in place, Twitter aims to solve all those problems and make the social media platform a place where healthier ideas can be promoted.
