AbstractIf robots are to be social, they will be integrated in our social networks. Indeed, ‘things that tweet’, including robots, are already followed by thousands of people. Robot design for long-term interaction would benefit from exploring what makes (dis)embodied robots that already communicate with people via existing social media engaging. This paper discusses a number of observations on ‘things’ that tweet and check-in.
