AbstractThis 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. We show parallels to prior research and discuss questions that these simple explorations pose for the future of robots and social media.
