  1. This is a great blog post Damilare!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    The part that I did not understand well is: When does the Flask app is initialized?
    To my understanding, you are asking Heroku to run bot app, via:
    web: python bot.py $PORT

    But I do not understand when the app.run() statement in the Flask app is executed.
    Does Heroku runs both bot.py as well as dictionary.py files?

    Would you please elaborate?

  2. Great Content. One thing that I do not understand is ‘webhook_url= + telegram_bot_token’
    what will the webhook_url look like? Will it be heroku url and bot token?
