For a minute, there was a mad rush to find Twitter substitutes. Facebook’s Threads eventually became the prevailing choice, although imperfect. But Bluesky remains in the game as well. And now it has added a very important feature that may make users consider giving this social media platform another shot. Bluesky revealed that it now officially has DMs. Bluesky notes that you can “Update to the latest version of the app (1.83) or refresh on desktop to start chatting!”
