Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Dan, ever tried this?

Many times. Nobody home. Telegram doesn't care about property rights. Great IT, awful platform IMHO.

Why is a telegram group necessary? Will you reach more people?

More channels equals more followers. I definitely see more deals because if telegram. TG also has a great in screen browser so itís more convenient to check the deal compared to twitter. Also, once thereís a rougel channel with nearly 1k subscribers, if thereís an official option they would all choose that instead.
Live forever or die trying.

It's not a group, it's a channel. The difference (for the most part) is that in a group there is discussion, all members can talk. A channel is a "group" that only admins can speak in, and all members can see. (Think of it as a tv channel)

I don't know about reaching more people, as most people that have telegram have other forms of social media as well, but taking myself as an example, I actually don't have Facebook, rarely check twitter, and spend a lot of time on telegram. So it's very convenient for me.

Just noting some typos (so people won't think you're yet another impersonater). The US way is unauthorized with a "z", and it's "infringing".
Actually, it should probably be "infringes".

you donít have to actually check Twitter. Turn on alerts for Dan......and why will Dan make it a priority to send out in telegram first?

I know about twitter alerts. Only works if you have SMS :)
Dan isn't actually posting it manually, he has a system set
Up that will automatically pull his posts from ddms and send to telegram channel.

I know, I have that. I don't remember why at the moment, but I didn't like the twitter SMS. Maybe because of other notifications I was getting (although it's possible to pick and choose)? It's been a long time since then. Regardless, im on telegram all the time, so this is great for me

Tweets are also done automatically, yes. Nevermind, see dans reply.

Browser notification/TG is done via a push from DDMS backend.
Twitter and FB sharing is manually done after that.

I'm getting the TG notification 30 seconds before the site notification, which is that much before the Twitter one.
I'll tell you later

Ridiculous that Whatsapp doesn't have any sort of pushing ability.
