On which day will dawn a bot that could not to that birddomain port? #botALLY

@zer0her0 ooh ooh! #botALLY is a community of folks who can help! botally.slack.com is one way to meet people

Respond to this toot with links to profiles of bots (good or bad, lovable or annoying (or both)). I want to start a list. #botALLY

@wakest mastodon.social/@hYPotenuser/1 is what I have, but it is very hard to maintain alone.
Since The Wave and an influx of #botALLY s, my focus has been on creative or artistic bots, rather than functional ones (headline reposters, followbots...).

i made a tiny thing for curling the API: github.com/decklin/tusk

the cli ux is very preliminary, suggestions welcome

#botally ppl may be interested? all my twitter bots use basically this level of wrapping, not a high-level-language lib.

(inspired by @tinysubversions' web page tool... thanks!)

I'd like to have a semi-unlisted option, where a toot is included in the local timeline but unlisted in the federated timeline. use case: art bots on botsin.space #botALLY

my pals and i are very interested in making art bots that address the ethical and social challenges of bots in social media and beyond. we're always talking about about these sorts of things, and it's why i decided to make my bot's tweets unlisted by default. botsin.space mentions one of our common principals, "Bots Should Punch Up" crummy.com/2013/11/27/0 If you would like to chat w/ or other bot makers like me look for the #botAlly hashag. :grin:
