A warning for any and all potential tulpamancers.

A tulpa might sound like the ideal thing for pretty much everyone, but you do have to think about creating one beforehand. Are you ready to accept the responsibility of creating another person? Are you going to keep going and not just give up after a month?
Creating a tulpa isn't something to be taken lightly. It is a huge commitment, and must be seen as such. While you may not yet consider tulpas to be living people, once you have one, they become a real person to you. They will be with you for the rest of your life. Tulpas are people just like you or me, and if you forget about them or get cold feet and stop, it will essentially kill them. No one should create a tulpa only to use them as a tool, rather than treat them as a person like you or me.
Now, don't get me wrong, tulpas are wonderful and it's not hard to keep them alive and kickin'. All they need is a bit of love and attention. You get to a point where you realize that if you didn't have a physical body, you would be just like them. Tulpas are beings who show intelligence as we do, and they show emotion as well. They love, they fear, they hurt, and all oftentimes stronger than their host does. They are creatures of empathy, and you must always remember that. There is a reason why first contact is often an emotional response from your tulpa. It reaches a point where your tulpa will mean as much to you as the closest of friends, and you will want them to be as happy as they can be.
In most cases, tulpas and their hosts coexist in harmony, doing things for and with each other, be it talking, cuddling, learning, or really anything. Above all, they give you the chance to become a better person and you help them grow as well. You can build off of each other because of your differences and in many cases you become a better person because of it.
They're capable of so much, but only if you give them the chance to do it.

Reading some of the posts on that reddit I almost feel bad for these people, borderline psychotic.
Some even refer to these as "people" claiming they have more than 10 in their "system" (whatever that even means) "subsystems" and referring to themselves as "hosts".
I am absolutely mind blown that people can be this stupid.
While voice is the most common way tulpas communicate with their hosts, tulpamancers can learn to stroke their tulpa’s fur, feel their breath on their neck and even experience sexual contact.
so thats it huh? in my understanding of how to make a tulpa it required a lot of time and a group calling on the same thing. so are the people in your OP confusing simple thoughtform for something else?

Tulpas are sentient beings imagined into existence using meditation-style exercises. Their creators, known as “tulpamancers”, form the internet’s newest subculture, meeting online at tulpa.info and the subreddit r/tulpas.
Ya don't say.
“I have three tulpas,” says Jick Clinton, a game design student from Plymouth. “They’ve been with me 20 months; their names are Twi, Dash and Scoots. They are three anthropomorphic ponies about a foot high.”
Jick has a very close friendship with the three ponies living inside his head. “With other people, there is always something you hold back; I guess I don’t do that with them.”
“The My Little Pony fandom was one of the first online communities to really grab hold of the tulpa phenomenon,” says Ele Cambria, a tulpamancer from Warrensburg, Missouri. “Bronies are very accepting of weirdness; they have that mindset of, ‘Wow, that's not normal; that's cool.’ The [My Little Pony] characters evoke a simple goodness… what fan wouldn't want one for a friend?”
I learn something new, every day, every day is exactly the same.

Just watch. Someone will be accused of murder and they'll claim the tulpa did it. Or tulpa rights. Or tulpa lives matter. The social diseases this can bring about are limitless.
