Does anyone have experience with Telegram bots?
In december Telegram released “Voice chat” for groups, which is a very neat feature. This open ups for an idea I’ve had in the idea box for a couple of years: Crowdsourced traffic information
There can currently be 200 000 people in a Telegram group. The idea is to combine traffic information from P4 and Trafikverket with crowdsourced comments and observations. When something happens in traffic you can report live what you see. I’ve started the experiment here: https://t.me/skjutsgruppen_trafik
I’m looking into having a bot that publish traffic information from P4 and Trafikverket in the group, and been going through the first steps with BotFather. Seems to be not too difficult: https://core.telegram.org/bots
Anyone got any experience with building or best practices?
