135 articles in 12 languages
5.5 million estimated coverage views
3.92K social shares of press articles
GoTBot made the homepage of Mashable, and was picked up by The Verge, CNet and even Esquire magazine.
"GoTBot covers everything from Jon Snow's nicknames to Hodor's favourite cereal." - Mashable
"The bot's creators clearly have a sense of humor about the show and do a fair amount of trolling when it comes to characters like Jon Snow." - The Verge
"GoTBot isn't afraid to be irreverent. Ask what's up with Cersei and Jaime and it delivers a GIF of actor Peter Dinklage giving a euphemistic description of their incestuous relationship." - CNet
"Better yet, the chatbot is full of snark, and the fun begins when you ask it questions it doesn't reconise. Seriously, it tells jokes and even disses the popular singer/producer Ed Sheeran." - SyFy
"If you never know quite what's going on in "Game of Thrones," there's a new way to find out." - Creativity
In the first 2 weeks of launch, GoTBot had over 20,000 conversations with 15,000 Game of Thrones fans from all over the world. The longest conversation had 826 messages between GoTBot and an avid Game of Thrones fan - a new best friend, we could say.
With an impressive average conversation of 04:59, GoTBot has seen over 600K messages since launch, growing every day.
