I was the same way.  It was my new life mission to move everyone over to Telegram, but due to it's abilities (i.e. features) it enabled otherwise kosher/filtered users to access things they were trying to protect themselves from, I stopped trying to get people to switch over.  I don't even like discussing its issues(ignorance is bliss), but it's already been said here.

@jj1000 , there are MANY telegram clients.  almost each platform (ios, android, windows, mac) has at least 2-3 clients.
https://telegram.org/apps (that's not all of them, at all)

You can PM me (or Telegram me), and I'll "show you around".
Indeed, ignorance is bliss. And the beauty is in the ability to be deliberately ignorant. While I was made aware of the features, I am able to not educate myself on the specifics of those, and just stick to it as a messaging system. But as mentioned, I no longer try to get people on it (that being said, is there a client that could work on a Nokia 208? Just because WA support is ending, and the alternatives of WeChat and LINE don't seem very good)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I downloaded it and emailed them. Same 256 limitations when I last checked.

I guess they have less than 256 subscribers:





Does WhatsApp status send alerts with links to your phone?

Kol Haolam started using it too, you can sign up for it and see exactly how it works. (I rarely look at their tweets now that they use whatsapp)
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You can't set up notifications, all there is a dot by the status tab that indicates you have a new status, but doesn't even show who it's from.

I love WA status updates, I think the reason is the speed I can go thru all updates. The other thing to keep in mind about WA is that it only stays up for 24 hours (that's not necessarily bad).

Whatsapp does not send an alert for any status updates.
I think Telegram is still the best option

I too had that for a bit... It seems to be on and off for me... Nothing to do with settings in my case...
I'm still keeping my Twitter notifications for that reason...

Try turning notifications off then back on.

I just got the squatter banned from Telegram.

I am curious how a (likely frum) person justifies it to himself at night, doing something like that.

Just as you were surpassing him in subscriber count.
Are you able to get that channel name now?

He's obviously not a Murah DiChushbana.
