People like to consume media in whatever platform they spend the most time on.
Live forever or die trying.

Because I'm out of the loop and don't have it?
What's the advantage of it over Twitter?
No idea. I don't have twitter either. I just get SMS notifications. I would agree with this, though.

I would think every additional platform can only serve to benefit you and increase your readership, especially if it's free and doesn't cost you much.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

What's the advantage of whatsapp over texting, I mean when you wouldn't need to pay for international texting

Faster, more reliable, ability to see status of the message.
How do I contact whoever is using the DD telegram account?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Whoever's using it, or running it?
I have no idea how telegram works. Anybody can join a group, you have to be added, or they have both open and closed groups?

It's not a group it's a broadcast

How do you sign up to get broadcasts? (When I think of telegram I just think of another version of WhatsApp. I'm quite clueless about it.)

DDMS is in desperate need of a refresh. Leave DDF alone except for a couple tweaks. No need for an app.

Have a spare $100K lying around to redesign DDMS, DDF, add some new features, and get an app going?
With referal links and all, an aap may actually get you all that money back if you set it up right.
I'm not who you think I am.

Ddms is WordPress based, unless some major tweaking was done to the script it should be quite easy to install a new theme.

what exactly would your change?
For a simple blog it doesn't serve its purpose properly?

What features would you like the app to offer?
If lets say I wanted a laptop, there would be a category for electronics-laptops, and there will be basic info on buying a laptop and also links to amazon (or something else) with referral links.
The main money issue is not 100K to update DDF, DDMS... it's to pay a new worker to keep everything updated.

Look at all those DDMS posts, half dans followers are just looking for someone to point at something.

Integrate links to flights, not just sales, but a deep description on how to book it thru his links, without a travel agent (obviously he only shows how to book thru his links and not in general, to keep people coming back).
I'm not who you think I am.
