    Who Is Jack Dorsey?

    The founder of Twitter (currently X) was born on November 19, 1976, in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. His parents are Tim Dorsey and Marcia Dorsey. His full name is Jack Patrick Dorsey.

  • Dorsey is notable for co-founding Twitter and Block. In December 2019, he funded a small team of researchers to develop an open-source social networking app and protocol. That project would later be known as Bluesky.

    Jack eventually joined the Board of Directors for Bluesky in February 2022. The same year, it raised $13 million in seed funding; in 2023, it raised $8 million.

    The platform has already introduced mobile push alerts, general user lists, email verification, and advanced feed and discussion options.

    Dorsey, along with OpenAI Boss Sam Altman and the late Steve Jobs, are on the list of CEOS who left companies they founded and later came back.
