I've been nursing this idea for a while so I want to know what Radarians think about it.
Bots are slowly coming on all platforms. I believe the only major platform left is WhatsApp.
So I was thinking whether it would be useful to create a single API to serve bots across all platforms.
Messenger, Twitter, Telegram e.t.c.
The bots themselves may be pretty basic. Mostly listen and reply. But if all end products of a startup can be organized into categories and subcategories, then it would be possible.
On demand services.
Why you may want to use it?
- Reach people where they are. It is easier to convince them to send you a message than to download your app
- Reach across every device quickly
- Don't worry about keeping up with all the bot code. Just access a single API and select your desired platforms.
What do y'all think?
Would you use it?
Would you integrate it in your startup?
As a dev, would you rather build your bot yourself?
