Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This study examined whether artificial cues of others on social networking sites (SNS) have an effect on a user’s tweeting behavior. We measured the statements posted by participants on a hypothetical SNS under two different experimental situations: one was the agent condition, in which task instructions were given by an assistant agent throughout the task, and the other was the control condition in which task instructions were given through a text box. In each condition, participants were asked to read fictional stories including frustrating events and to state their feelings on the SNS. The negativity and aggressiveness of each statements in both conditions were assessed by other participants. Results demonstrate that the statements for the frustrating interpersonal event posted by participants under the agent condition were less often evaluated as negative-and-blaming-of-others than those posted under the control condition. These results suggest that the implication of the presence of others in the tweeting environment inhibits disparaging tweeting behavior on SNS.
