Line Channel: use replyToken for the first message sent


This is an update about the Line channel.

Thanks to the suggestion from Winho!!

Before the update, we were using "push" to send all the message. Winho mentioned that this can cost their "push message" quota and suggested we can send message by using the replyToken, which means that, using "reply" instead of "push". This can save a lot consumption of "push message" to their Line account.

Now the system will use the replyToken to send the first message. For example, a user sends "hi". If you have 2 messages to respond to this greeting. The first one will be sent using "reply" and the second one (all the rest) using "push".

This can somehow save your "push" messages amount in your Line account.
