Bots aren’t just service tools—they’re a whole new form of media

“Bots are a new form of adaptive media that live within social media platforms: They serve to mediate the flow of messages between people, and they also channel the evolution of social networks. Bots are different from social media websites in that social media websites are largely static; your profile picture and the like button are stable features of the platform. Bots, by contrast, behave dynamically and can be programmed to adapt to communities. As such, bots are an adaptive form of media that can be crafted for many purposes relevant to researchers, artists, technologists, and everyday internet users.”
