I’m trying to minimize the amount of data I send OTA when publishing events to Thingspeak, and I was wondering if it is more data efficient to use the Thingspeak library or publish events to the particle cloud and relay them to Thingspeak using a webhook.
It looks like Particle events send their as strings which is uses more data than like a short. Does the Thingspeak library do the same behind the scenes? Also do they have the same data cost for authentication / API keys, etc?
Also, I would like help comparing the data usage of various posting methods (GET, POST, JSON, etc)
Thanks in advance.
