At some point I was considering to make a bird-feeder with a simple Arduino sensor to count birds.
I thought I could make use of some simple tool that would notify me of another bird visiting, or that the battery is low. E-mail would do, but it feels like too much hassle when you can send one request to a messenger of choice.
Glip and Slack offer easy creation of a public webhook URL for any chat, that you could use to send messages.
However, I wanted to use my private messenger accounts for it, and did not find a similar project nor for FB messenger, nor for Telegram.
So I made one myself. That’s how Telegram @wwwebhook_bot was created!
Initially I wanted to use it with FB messenger, but it’s hard to get it approved there for public use.
The project has first seen light of the world in August 2018.
