Tip of the Week

Just started using this one but it looks cool. A Facebook bot that controls your Tesla!

TeslaBot allows you to send a message on Facebook and it will pass the commands on to your car. Very convenient for controlling your car from a browser. Just send a FB message to the bot and it does what you ask. 

WARNING: using the bot requires giving your Tesla login info to the bot. If they are bad guys they can control your car. Use at your own risk.

To use TeslaBot, send a Facebook message to @teslabotai
