If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Downloaded Telegram just for this. Looks so much like whatsapp it's freaky.

It looks nothing like it.
But if it looks similar to whatsapp it's because whatsapp copies telegram's innovative features 3-5 years later.

Dan, The way the other guy has his auto forward set up looks nicer and has more information. Maybe that's just my personal preference.

Not that I give him right. Btw. I don't know that it's not your Channel till he posted his own referral link that wasn't forwarded to your website.

2 from TG? Or one from TG and one from web notifications/Twitter?

That's because he's drawing everything from Twitter, but it also means his stuff is 5-15 minutes delayed.

Is the squatter's format better? I can probably copy that it that's what people want.

If you can copy without a time delay then I'd go for squatters format.
Otherwise if you can shrink the images so there's less scrolling then I'd be more happy with your current format.

What's wrong with the way it is? (I'm on android) Each post is about the same size as the squatters.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Visually, large image is nicer.

Practically, the more information out of the post, the better a decision can be made whether to click or to move on.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I see that on my phone too. It seems that the desktop app only shows the first line of the article while the phone app reveals more. In that case I'd vote for the chase cc format which is shorter and also has a smaller image than deals above.
