I’m using the new ‘direct_messages/events/new’ endpoint to write a chatbot —
I am right now responding with a random message out of a set of 10 and after about 5 messages in as many minutes I get this response:
Error: This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later.
How is this possible? “Might be automated”? Of course – I am sending this through an API so of course it’s automated.
A chatbot will very often send the same or similar responses to user input. How do I work around this?
