Popular messenger in America
Since the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters and the subsequent blocking of the US president's accounts, Telegram has become the second most downloaded in the US. However, WhatsApp's new policy could also have influenced its rise in popularity.
Telegram messenger has become the second most downloaded app in the US, after Twitter permanently blocked the account of incumbent President Donald Trump and Apple and Google removed the Parler social network popular with his supporters from app shops. This was reported by The Daily Telegraph.
The Telegram founder also commented on the removal of the social network Parler, which was used by Trump supporters, from the App Store and Google Play shops. Apple and Google accused it of lacking moderation and spreading "threats to public safety". "Apple and Google pose a much bigger problem for freedom than Twitter. Apple is the most dangerous of the two because it can completely restrict your access to apps", he said.
