What is a telegram?
Telegram Messenger is an open-source multi-platform instant messaging app, founded in late 2013 by Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov. The app creator said that no ads will be published in the app or sold to any organization. If money is ever needed to run the app, users will be asked for a grant. The security of the app has been strengthened so much.
