For tool time this week we'll be hearing from Saiph Savage, an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at West Virginia University. Her team created Botivist, a platform that uses twitter bots to mobilize volunteers and request contributions for causes... that actually works.

"By leveraging different Twitter accounts, Botivist employs different strategies to encourage participation. We explore how people respond to bots calling them to action using a test case about corruption in Latin America. Our results show that the majority of volunteers (> 80%) who responded to Botivist’s calls to action contributed relevant proposals to address the assigned social problem. Different strategies produced differences in the quantity and relevance of contributions. Some strategies that work well offline and face-to-face appeared to hinder people’s participation when used by an online bot. We analyze user behavior in response to being approached by bots with an activist purpose. We also provide strong evidence for the value of this type of civic media, and derive design implications."
