HitchBOT is having a big adventure! Has his own Twitter account too.
HitchBOT's Twitter is pretty amusing: https://twitter.com/hitchBOT
It didn't take long for HitchBOT to become a social media sensation and, truth be told, many of the people who have offered him a ride already knew about him before encountering the bizarre contraption. Smith said its Instagram following was approaching 11,000 people, its Facebook account had garnered more than 41,000 "likes" and it has nearly 32,000 Twitter followers.
I'm introducing HitchBOT at SVIEF in Santa Clara on Sept 27 if you want to meet the bot (and it's makers).
