Adds all the needed information of a new bot. When using this function, required information is saved to a RDS file, with the same name as your bot. The default path is path.expand("~"), but this can be overridden by setting path below. The steps are outlined below before using this function: First, add a bot from the Telegram app on your phone. Then send to Botfather: '/newbot' After this, follow instructions - adding first a name for your bot (remember this one), and also a username for your bot (ending in _bot). Botfather will also give you a Token, the validity of which can be checked by typing into a browser: https://api.telegram.org/bot<YOURTOKEN>/getMe Save this Token (this is the input to the function Add_Bot). If the browser does not give you an error message, it is a valid bot. It should also show you the bot name and bot username. After getting the Token, you must awake your bot by typing /start. You will see the new bot as part of your contacts. Lastly, send your bot a message from your phone (to initiate conversation with your bot. Simply type: 'Hello!') You are now ready to add this bot to your worker bots... Run: Add_Bot(Token)
