VCtips is a Twiter bot — a Twitter feed with multiple authors — created by Union Square Ventures’ Fred Wilson and O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures’ Bryce Roberts. The two of them, along with 8 other VCs, use the service to offer advice and aphorisms, fortune cookie-style, to startups. Like:

Here is the roster of other advice-givers. We gather that the list will be growing in the days to come:
Josh Kopelman, First Round Capital
Chris Sacca, former Google exec-turned angel
Rob Hayes, First Round
David Hornik, August Capital
Andy Weissman, Betaworks
Bijan Sabet, Spark Capital
Albert Wenger, USV
Aydin Senkut, Felcis Ventures
