In only a few days, Telegram Messenger Becomes The Second Most Downloaded App In The US
Telegram Messenger is now ranked second in the most downloaded applications in the United States. This is happening after Twitter blocked the Trump’s account, Apple and Google removed from their app stores the popular social network of his Parler supporters and Amazon Web Services cut off Parler from any access to their services.
The backup solution was easy: Telegram Messenger.
For years, ISIS has used a variety of online platforms, including Twitter and WhatsApp among others, to communicate with recruits and operatives, issue claims of responsibility for attacks, and disseminate news updates and propaganda materials. Today, Trump’s right-wing extremists and terrorists are doing exactly the same. What the United States of America is now dealing with is nothing else then Internal Terrorism.
What the United States of America is now dealing with is nothing else then possible armed insurrections and assassination attempts against its duly elected political leaders and members of the government. What the United States of America is now dealing with is nothing else then a possible civil war. In less than a week, since January 6, in only a few days, Telegram Messenger, in the United States, has been downloaded overt 545 thousand times and we are still counting.
Terrorist and extremist groups use encrypted application Telegram Messenger to recruit new members, fundraise, incite to violence, and coordinate terrorist activity. Telegram Messenger’s messaging application has both public-facing and private components. This flexible interface enables Trump’s right-wing extremists and terrorists to do everything from self-promotion, brand development and propaganda dissemination, to secret plotting of attacks outside detection or interference from law enforcement.
There are dark days coming, very dark days coming.
