Webhook

If you've fired the above webhook setup artisan command, then a webhook will automatically be set with Telegram.

The webhook URL looks like: https://YOUR_DOMAIN/telegram/YOUR_BOT_TOKEN/YOUR_BOT_NAME

Incoming webhook requests from Telegram will automatically be verified, processed, and acknowledged to Telegram for you. You can listen to various events the SDK dispatches to process inbound updates. You'll find an example in this repo as you explore.
