    One of my absolute favourite messengers. I’d take Telegram over WhatsApp any day.

      Same here. I enjoy using it a lot more than WhatsApp. It supports .GIF files, file sending, and they even have a desktop client.

    I look forward to that number hitting 200M. Anyway, there’s a small mistake in the article. “ISIL” should be “ISIS”.

    • Igor Bonifacic

      Both are correct. Depending on how a person translates the group’s name into English, they’re either know as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (also ISIS) or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

    …and the FBI didn’t ask for a backdoor?

    • deltatux

      Telegram is incorporated in Germany, don’t think the FBI has jurisdiction over foreign entities.

      He was obviously joking, in a reference to the ongoing Apple story.
