Beeline reports that Telegram has become the most popular messenger platform in Russia, given its high volume of consumed traffic. “Today, the amount of user traffic on the popular messaging platform is 15 times that of WhatsApp.” Furthermore, since Telegram allows for the transmission of large-sized messages, photographs, and videos, it is worth comparing it to the whole Meta traffic, including Instagram. A Beeline official remarked: “In this analysis, Telegram comes out on top with a coefficient of 2.14.” He also said that WhatsApp traffic has declined three times since the autumn of 2020, whereas Telegram traffic has climbed six times in the same time frame.
Meanwhile, Judge Alexandre de Moraes imposed a ban judgement on the messaging app in Brazil, following a series of reports on disinformation from the social communication app. The Federal Supreme Court of Brazil has revoked its order to restrict Telegram in the nation. According to the court verdict, the messenger has completely cooperated with the court’s directives, and its operation in Brazil may resume. –According to Brazilian TV channel O Globo.
However, the Supreme Court of Brazil had earlier ordered that access to the app should be restricted owing to the failure to remove banned information. Following that, Pavel Durov, the messenger’s founder, revealed that this was due to a mistake in sending work letters. Durov also requested that the Brazilian court postpone the verdict for a few days in order to allow Telegram time to remedy the situation.
