I'm thinking of making a quick next project: scraping the admin accounts of the top-100 instances and putting them in a list. It seems @TheKinrar doesnt't expose that information on the instances.social API - guessing that's intentional? Or is it not provided by Mastodon (didn't check yet)

Well it seems the contact person of an instance is exposed via the Mastodon API so wouldn't be too hard hacking something together github.com/tootsuite/documenta @TheKinrar

@mdbraber you can use the `GET /api/v1/instance` API call to get information about an instance (unauthenticated). There is a `contact` field in the response that is usually the admin (but doesn't *have* to be)
