I don't understand why some people were "laughing" about being down.

I fully agree that decentralization is clearly a better alternative to .

However, IMO, each person that leaves WhatsApp, should be counted as a victory. Even if it's still towards or Signal.

Don't be an arrogant a**hole, help people leave WhatsApp. This migration shows us that more and more people are becoming aware of their right to privacy.

Let's just live one day at a time, shall we?

@gadonias I agree, that people changing to #Signal #Threema or even better decentralized services #XMPP or #Matrix is a good thing, but while #Telegram is open source, it doesn't offer usuable end-to-end encryption (only 1:1 chats from phone to phone), which is a huge drawback.

@benedikt I completely agree with you. However, it's like I said, we should take one step at a time. Telegram seems to be a good compromise between a truly private tool and WhatsApp.
