A new tool called Chatfuel helps publishers build bots for messaging apps

Some news organizations are looking to messaging apps as a new way to deliver news to their readers, but how can a news organization get started building a bot? To make it simpler, a new tool called Chatfuel lets publishers (or anyone) create a bot for messaging apps, allowing users to focus on certain topics or ask questions about the news. Chatfuel is currently limited to messaging app Telegram, but its co-founder Dmitrii Dumik says it will expand to other messaging apps soon, including WhatsApp, Slack and Facebook Messenger.
