Been outside the loop for too long, what made Telegram confirmed botnet?
Serious question, looking through archives didn't give me any reason, just random posts saying
B O T N E T
and the like.
Why not shitpost on twitter instead? It is safer, more anonymous and more secure for anyone who live in a totalitarian regime. Don't want to get jailed in case anyone talks shit about the president.

Weak crypto... Also they seem to cooperate with totalitarian states to get political dissidents jailed. For example like in Egypt. Twitter has proven to be much safer for anyone who want to badmouth the Egyptian president.
The so called "security" aspect of it is just placebo and they are obviously more insecure than social media that is public. If you look how little twitter shares with totalitarian regimes.
Signal is better and more secure. So is twitter and whatsapp.
Gonna check them out.
Using Telegram for normie friends tho, so I guess I'll keep the app a while.
I mostly shitpost there anyway.
Damn son, that's quite a big deal.
I feel for the people in totalitarian states, that just plain sucks.
Keep in mind that Signal is open-source, uses crypto correctly, and will have desktop app in the future for all platforms.
There's also cryptocat... Dunno much about it tho...
>Can they see my telephone number?
There's two (AFIAK):
/g/ (which requires SSL, probably to weed out the less technically inclined)
/g/technology which is a more general chat about technology
Considering how fast things are going, I'm surprised that IRC still has a healthy population.
