It is learnt that the private messaging service Telegram gained as many as three million new followers within last 24 hrs.
This was announced by none other than services’ founder and CEO Pavel Durov.
This is definitely a massive gain in users in such a short period of time, considering the messaging app only has around 200 million users worldwide.
It is said that most followers could have been added due to brief outage of other popular such platforms.
It need be mentioned that Facebook has been plagued by outages of its most popular services, including Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
