@clayton it should be notes that Telegram isn't really open-source. But nether the less nice summary

@clayton they're good bullet points except that Telegram really shouldn't be called open source. It plays into their false advertising. Only some of their clients are open source, and they receive no community development. Backend is proprietary, even with vague promises of open sourcing for years

@f0x @clayton yeah, what it meant is that Telegram can hold a lot of people and therefore be used to make an "open protest"

@f0x yeah from my toot i can see how that's a little misleading. thanks for the clarification @v0idifier

@clayton ServalMesh and wifi routers (even without a connection) can be handy
