The more I learn about the #telegram messenger the more I come to belief my computer nerd bubble is super biased. They point out a lot of negatives but it turns out most of them are not true. But anyways...computer nerd bubble...why should I stop using Telegram?
@witziege IMO the biggest problem is no end-to-end encryption by default - a company that can access way more of your chats by default than WhatsApp can is not really a good WhatsApp alternative IMO.
If E2EE isn't a required feature (e.g. for mostly public group chats) or when paying attention to using secret chats, it's definitely not a bad software though, especially from a UX perspective.
@momar @tastytea Missing E2EE in default chats should be a dealbreaker for me. I knew about that already but I got fooled by Durov's euphemistic framing on Telegrams encryption methods. His use of words suggest Telegram is a save messenger for the majority of people but it's basically like having the traditional post to seal your envelopes...not very convincing.
