##How does it work?
The trigger runs bot every minute. Bot searches for all tweets with
@askYodaQA which has not been founded yet. It parses only question from tweet (deletes
# from hashtags and
@user) and sends it to YodaQA. It saves user, question id, dialog id and tweet id to memmory sheet. It asks YodaQA for answer to all saved questions in the memmory sheet. It send's answer to author and all mentioned users in the tweet, right after the answer is completed.
It supports dialogs. When the question is asked in the interval of five minutes after the last question, than they are connected into one dialog.
