Hi J.T.,

  1. There are all kinds of Twitter bots out there. Some are silly and for fun (like this one), and others have scientific applications. I think you’d find the segment that inspired the scifri_ebooks Twitter bot insightful: http://www.sciencefriday.com/segments/i-twitter-bot/
  2. We made our Twitter bot because our presence on social media is more playful and it went with the segment. It’s purpose is definitely supplementary.
