Telegram, the encrypted messaging service that allows more freedom of speech on their platform than the tech giants, is the fastest growing app in the world for the year 2021.
According to San Francisco-based data insights company, App Annie, Telegram ranked the highest in the important category of breakout monthly active users, with Instagram and Zoom taking the second and third slots.
In response to the news, Telegram founder Pavel Durov said the year of 2021 “will be remembered as the year when people grew tired of being disrespected by greedy corporations and chose the Telegram’s privacy and consistency.”
Big League Politics has reported on the rise of Telegram as the masses grow tired with Big Tech restrictions that are only intensifying amidst the COVID-19 vaccine regime:
“The encrypted communications app Telegram has surpassed 500 million active users, the platform announced on Tuesday.
“In the first week of January, Telegram surpassed 500 million monthly active users. After that it kept growing: 25 million new users joined Telegram in the last 72 hours alone. These new users came from across the globe – 38% from Asia, 27% from Europe, 21% from Latin America and 8% from MENA,” wrote Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram.
“This is a significant increase compared to last year, when 1.5M new users signed up every day. We’ve had surges of downloads before, throughout our 7-year history of protecting user privacy. But this time is different,” he added.
Durov noted that the public is getting sick of Big Tech monopoly platforms and their hostility against free speech and privacy rights. This is fueling the overwhelming growth of Telegram.
“People no longer want to exchange their privacy for free services. They no longer want to be held hostage by tech monopolies that seem to think they can get away with anything as long as their apps have a critical mass of users,” Durov wrote.
“With half a billion active users and accelerating growth, Telegram has become the largest refuge for those seeking a communication platform committed to privacy and security. We take this responsibility very seriously. We won’t let you down,” he continued.
“Those of you who have used Telegram for the last several years know we’ve been consistent both when it comes to defending private data and to improving our apps,” Durov added.“
The market is speaking, and the Big Tech monopolies are beginning to squander their control over the industry. The rise of Telegram is great news for freedom lovers worldwide.
