We did not formally announce it at the time, but the Galaxy Training Network has migrated from Twitter/X to Mastodon, as that platform no longer aligns with the Galaxy Project Code of Conduct nor our community values.

If you’d like to keep up to date with the GTN, we encourage you to follow us on mastodon. The fediverse and mastodon are an open, standards compliant social network that is significantly more aligned with our community values and priorities of keeping community safe.

Are you not a fediverse user? Do you not have a mastodon account? That’s ok! Every mastodon account has a built in RSS feed which you can use to stay updated, and the GTN has an RSS feed as well for our news.
