http://ift.tt/1P81X8Y As an avid user of the telegram app ([specifically with my LATIUM usage](http://ift.tt/2zQDuiT)), I found this to be an interesting analysis on twitter. Also, [check out the LATIUM cryptocurrency](http://ift.tt/2CeTbqr). For those that use the TELEGRAM app, check out this [discussion by Snowden on Twitter](https://twitter.com/Snowden/status/947190333540061185): > Many don't seem to understand why I object to @Telegram having unsafe, censorable public channels in an app that is promoted as a secure messenger. Some presumed I just don't understand how channels work. So let's talk about it: > Background: [@Telegram](https://twitter.com/telegram) has a special position in Iran. Its "public channels" are an important source of news for many low-tech users. Competing services are often blocked, but Telegram makes concessions to avoid this [like setting up local CDNs](http://ift.tt/2uGlTt1) > This is both a good and bad thing. On one hand, keeping people who don't understand and will never learn what Tor and VPNs connected to a big and difficult-to-moderate communications ecosystem is valuable, when the government largely has but two moves: "block" or "not block." > On the other, it means [@Telegram](https://twitter.com/telegram) will face increasing pressure over time to collaborate with the Iranian government's demands for this or that. Today we saw the communications minister demand a big channel be shut down. And here's where we start getting into complexity. What are your thoughts on TELEGRAM specifically, or chat technology in general? I typically don't trust any 'security' claim. Is there anyway to make chat interfaces secure? It is a problem that doesn't seem like it can be solved with a decentralized blockchain...
