What's great about these bots is the install-ability of them — I just saw "TechCrunch on Messenger" and could get started using it without downloading anything. I'm not a fan of getting news delivered several times a day (too distracting), but it's great that the barrier to entry in terms of speed, data cost, and difficulty is so low with bots.

Had to block the CNN bot since I'm not a fan of message overload. Love to hear from someone actively using one of these news bots, do you find it useful?

Reading an article is painful in this. The articles are not tailored for messenger. I like the Quartz app which has all the articles summarized and linked to the original article. This is a good start though!

Doesn't work that well. https://scontent.fmaa1-1.fna.fbc...
