Catching up with the creator of botsin.space

Colin Mitchell is the creator of botsin.space, a Mastodon instance created specifically for online bots and their creators.

It’s been two months since Twitter introduced sweeping changes to its platform. As a result, many active botmakers either shut their bots down, or moved them to Mastodon — or more specifically to the botsin.space Mastodon instance, which is designed to host friendly online bots.

I caught up with the website’s creator, Colin, whose bio describes him as someone who builds art and other things on the internet, to get a peek behind the curtains, and to get to know Colin a bit.
