I'm not on Telegram: it is just another centralized proprietary social network. Still, it is important to remember that it is the only Russian social platform that isn't owned by Yuri Milner, one of the three major pre-IPO investors in Facebook (along with Palantir founder Peter Thiel and Mitch McConnell's brother-in-law Jim Breyer). Wish journalists mentioned it more often when covering Telegram and Durov.

@angdraug wow I didn't know that about Facebook. Milner, Thiel and McConnell's brother is like they deliberately tried to play Evil Murderous Bastard Bingo. And won.

@isagalaev Not brother, brother-in-law: their wives are sisters.
