As co-organizer of Botwiki, Bethoney helps lead a community of passionate makers who create all manner of weird and wonderful bots across platforms like Twitter, Messenger, Slack, Mastodon, and others.

But when she tweeted about her law bot template, which makes it easy for anyone to make a bot that tweets legislation in any state, it took off 🚀

Stefan is the creator of Botwiki, an open catalog of friendly, useful and artistic online bots, tools and tutorials.

Alongside fellow admin, Veronica Belmont, Stefan and co have worked tirelessly for the past year and a half on the site that’s dedicated to teaching folks how to make friendly, whimsical, and (by his own admission) “sometimes mildly annoying”, online bots.

Creator Spotlight: Building Twitter Bots with Stefan Bohacek (Glitch via, May 2017) provides a list of tools and resources for developers to create ethical bots, and the organization has a Code of Conduct that applies to all bots its more than 700 members create.

Stefan Bohacek, Botmakers’s organizer, said reaching outside of your usual social and professional circles to other groups can give you a different perspective and help you realize features your bot might need for harassment prevention.

Developed by BotWiki, The Monthly Bot Challenge started as a community event with a simple concept: on the first day of each month, a new challenge topic – and prize – is announced online.

Le site a commencé à les cataloguer, en plus d’offrir des tutoriaux pour en créer et plein d’informations, et comme Twitter est un des réseaux les plus accueillants je vous ai fait une petite sélection de mes préférés :

Botwiki came about because Bohacek wanted to be able to run fast searches whenever he had an idea for a bot. As he explains, similar websites that already existed “were either a bit incomplete, hard to browse, or plainly just didn’t work most of the time.”

Stefan Bohacek decided he would catalog every bot on the web.

It’s no small task and he’s far from done. At his site,, you can search bots by category, by platform, or if you’re a dev and you want to learn how to make a bot, you can search by language or the text or data you want to use.

NPR calling me and @mtrc "bot watchers […] bemoan[ing] the imminent demise of creations they loved".

Fair enough.

@stefan is clearly not only focused on the technical aspects of bots on social networks though: “I am really excited about being part of something new and positive that we can all help grow together. Between the scams of the profit-oriented “web3” and the continued automation of jobs that the working class will hardly benefit from, there really hasn’t been much to get excited about in the tech world. So this is a very welcome change, and I am happy to be part of it.”
