In my opinion, we have 2 options:
- We create tags for both Whatsapp and Telegram, to be used on questions involving code that does vaguely gestures something with those services. Whether they're bots, scrapers, handlers, etc., all tagged based on the service targeted. There are a decent number of questions per service already (a quick search yields 12 questions for Whatsapp, 31 for Telegram), so we'd have to coordinate the re-tagging effort (or flood the frontpage).
- We outlaw such tags for not targeting a specific library. In which case it's a matter of time before we have a lot of tags that look a lot like each other with 1-3 questions each.
I'm fine with either and will volunteer to do the re-tagging. I'll post 2 answers to vote on, feel free to leave comments or post a third answer.
This question was prompted by this post, which created too specific tags.
