Botwiki on Glitch 🎏

What is Glitch?

Glitch is a community (and a website) that “helps you build the app or bot of your dreams”. Botwiki has several tutorials and guides on how to use Glitch to create and host bots.

In fact, it’s Stefan’s Twitter bot templates that power many of the Twitter apps on Glitch. His templates provide a useful springboard to the throngs of devs who are eager to quickly create a Twitter app or bot on Glitch, and they’ve already been remixed by more than 350 other app creators.

Glitch officially only supports node.js, but folks have been able to use many other languages, including Python. Also note that using pinging services, formerly a common and accepted practice on the platform, has been banned.
