Is there any such thing as a userbot (aka "selfbot") in Slack? Or it the API 100% locked to actual bot accounts?


@slackbot and @eslachance (yes, your own account has some “selfbot” functionality, just chat with yourselves)


Hmm. What I mean by that is... well I have a selfbot in Discord, I pop in my login token and it acts like a "real" bot only responding to me. So I can do something like "/tag getting-started" and it edits my message with data from a database of tags. This is what I mean. I can do this anywhere.


type / and see popup with all available commands


I know I just wanted to know if I could add custom ones. It's kind of cheaty in Discord so I'm guessing Slack, being more business-oriented, is better at preventing this sort of thing.
