Push message back to Facebook Messenger

The bot has been working in Facebook messenger for a day or two (dev mode only) but I could not receive the all important checkin messages the bot was trying to send me.

The error related to permissions and Auth... I started to worry if FB messenger would support the interactions the bot needed. Trawling through the facebook documentation just made me more worried, it seemed to confirm my suspicions about the one-time message requirement.

After working through my code line by line again I found that I had been attempting to post the message back to Messenger on an overridden instance of the adapter (non-facebook aware) that at a low level was not sending the auth requirement to FB 🤦

All good! looks like I'll be able to check-in with users each day or as they reach a goal date OK.
