Cheap Bots, Done Quick!

This site will help you make a Twitterbot! They're easy to make and free to run.

To use it, create a Twitter account for your bot to run under and then sign in below. The bots are written in Tracery, a tool for writing generative grammars developed by Kate Compton. This site is run by v buckenham - they can be contacted at You can support this site on Patreon.

Update (6th April 2023): CBDQ has closed down! Twitter has ended all large-scale API usage, and this means that CBDQ is unable to operate. Please get in touch if you would like access to the source of your bot.

If you are interested in moving your bot to Mastodon, @boodooperson has set up Cheap Bots, Toot Sweet!, which operates using the same syntax.

I am currently at work on a spritual sequel to CBDQ called Downpour, where you can collage images together to make videogames. It's aiming to be just as fun and accessible as CBDQ. You can sign up to be notified once it releases.

And finally... if you made a Twitterbot with Cheap Bots, Done Quick!... thank you! The site would've been nothing without you.
