Bots on Botwiki

Bots galore!

So what exactly is a “bot”?

Well, it really depends on who you ask:

An Internet bot, also known as web robot, WWW robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone.

In essence, an online bot is a program (sometimes simple, sometimes more complex) that does something a human would otherwise do, like post pictures on Tumblr or retweet Tweets about cats.

Bots can be funny, useful, artistic — but also annoying and spammy. This site, and our Botmakers community, are dedicated to the friendlier kind.
