A message was sent to a channel


Works with

    "type": "message",
    "subtype": "bot_message",
    "ts": "1358877455.000010",
    "text": "Pushing is the answer",
    "bot_id": "BB12033",
    "username": "github",
    "icons": {}

A bot_message is sent when a message is sent to a channel by an integration "bot". It is like a normal user message, except it has no associated user.

The bot_id tells you which bot sent this message. The username and icon to use can be looked up by passing this to bots.info. Some bot_messages also include username and/or icons properties. If present these override the default username or icon for this bot.
