Running a Go Telegram bot on AWS Lambda

I don’t have any bad habit.

I don’t smoke or drink enough to blackout, but the only thing I can not stop doing is hosting my own server whenever I can.

This obviously means that I run a public-facing server - which is just a ThinkPad - at my home, using the IPv41 address that my ISP kindly provided.

I’m an avid Telegram Messenger user too, and I’ve wrote a couple of bots to help me automate some tasks on the go, without the need of a CLI even on a smartphone.

Regarding WhatsApp IP "leakage habit"

Recently Colin Hardy posted a video where he demonstrated how the WhatsApp web client leaks the user’s IP address when computing URL previews.

All of the sudden the entire web freaked out because of this behavior, while in my opinion there isn’t much to be scared of.

Breadfraud 2!

Seems like someone is still trying to scam innocent Bitcoin users through fake Breadwallet clones published on the Apple AppStore.
