Twitter, X? Is Bluesky the white knight?

Unfortunately, Twitter, or "X", as "Mighty Musk" wants us to call his new acquisition, is becoming increasingly unattractive to me. Platform moderation is effectively no longer taking place, Mr. Musk is unfortunately showing his dark side more and more, and functions are being curtailed. We are witnessing a billionaire expertly dismantling one of his toys. And we, as loyal users, are losing an important social platform.
