What is a Telegram Bot?
A Telegram Bot is a programme that behaves like a normal chat partner with additional functions. It performs predefined tasks independently and without the user’s involvement. The most important feature of a Telegram bot is the possibility to execute commands within the chat, which then directly trigger actions or request information.
