@pth I hope you consider Kickstartering it! I'm happy to throw a disproportionate amount of money to see Mastodonbot get off the ground, and I'm sure a handful of others would too.
If nothing else you can use it as a measure of interest to validate that there is a market. It probably won't be anywhere near what Tweetbot's is now but it probably has more of a future given Twitter's attitude.
