A "Bot" is a combo of an API key and a secret alphanumeric code that allows anybody to read or write to Tulip's database. It must be manually created by a user with access to the Bots page- there are no "default" bots.
Access is controlled via the API key and secret, and can always be turned off at any point. The "secret" will only be displayed once, when the bot is created.
