  1. Clone the script
  2. Replace your chatID and Token on the top of the script.
  3. Edit the delay. (seconds)
  4. Save and run
  5. Use the telegram commands to manage feeds

Warning! Without chatID the bot wont be able to send automated messages and will only be able to respond to messages.

Usage
