GHGA, the NFDI association and many other NFDI consortia are leaving Twitter/X
The NFDI association and all NFDI consortia are dedicated to the core values of Open Science. We value diversity – not only in the data we care about, but also in the conversations we engage in. We are committed to nurturing an environment that is welcoming, supportive, respectful and free of harassment, intimidation, bullying and discrimination. The decision of Twitter/X to substantially reduce their content moderation teams and to invite previously banned perpetrators of hate speech back onto their platform, runs contrary to this commitment. We’ve therefore decided to move our social media engagement away from Twitter/X. We’re focusing our efforts on our accounts on platforms that currently better resonate with our values, such as Mastodon, LinkedIn or BlueSky.
We will stop using Twitter/X from December 31th 2023. Our account will remain inactive, serving as an archive rather than a conduit for communication. We encourage you to join us in other spaces that support constructive and respectful dialogue.
