2023-June-15: BGO is excited to announce support for Mastodon! Users of the social media platform Mastodon can interact with the BGO on its account at @BGO@observatory.social. Support for Mastodon comes as the future the Twitter interface is uncertain. Mastodon is open-source and free of corporate control and without advertising! Observers can request authorization from Mastodon accounts. If an observer would like to switch their main interface to Mastodon, use the #human command or contact the BGO by email.
2023-April-27: A #filters command has been added for all observers to quickly access information about the available filters at BGO. In the Email interface, a new #token command has been added for extra validation between Email users and the BGO. Find more information about how it works in the E-Mail Help page.
