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".

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.
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.
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.

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

Limited to just 256 people. And there's no plugin that can push it there AFAIK.

Such options should be integrated in to WA business, no limit, and the option to follow with out saving the number, once we are at it, be able to follow without knowing/seeing the number.

That's the whole fight between TG and whatsapp. TG became a commercial platform, Whatsapp is trying to avoid that.

You can use the status update - I don't think there's any limit on followers.
Though I'm not sure if you can add links.

Problem is you have to be saved in each others contacts.

awful platform IMHO.
The most powerful platform I've ever seen! There is so many things you can do with Telegram that you can't do anywhere else.

As I said, the IT is great. Respect for intellectual property and trademark, not so much.
