Things that Tweet, Check-In and are Befriended. Two Explorations on Robotics & Social Media.

By Henriette Cramer and Sebastian Büttner


This late breaking report describes two explorations of effects of using social media in human-robot interaction. The first is an exploration of how ‘autonomous creatures’ can use information shared via social awareness streams by implementing a Nabaztag to use information from its ‘friends’ on location-sharing service foursquare. The second is an informal analysis of tweets sent to an existing robot-associated twitter account as a case.
