After the precedent created when Apple and Google have removed Parler socialization service from apps, requests are now starting to appear to eliminate other socializing or messaging services..For example, Marc Ginsburg, former US Ambassador and former Secretary of State, called Apple to eliminate Telegram service from Store, who has grown up in popularity over the past few weeks..
Telegram, next on the list of social networks eliminated from the App Store?
Telegram is a secure messaging service with origin in Russia.It offers encrypted messenger at both ends, so the messages cannot be intercepted along the way, and only the devices can "decode" them.This has led to the popularity growth of the service especially in users circles who want to be able to communicate about prohibited things on other platforms, being protected by the security of the service.
Marc Ginsburg asks Apple to get Telegram out of the App Store and pay for 75 damages.000 dollars because Telegram houses multiple accounts and groups of organizations with Nazi tent.He, as a iPhone XR user and as a member of the Jewish community, says the presence of Telegram service on the App Store creates emotional illnesses.He also says that Telegram, through his presence in the store, violates the Apple Regulations on moderation, which is why Parler was also removed from the App Store.
Ginsburg also seems from the coalition for a Safer web, which aims to pressure social media services to eliminate communities that encourage racism, online or offline violence, anti-Semitism and any such abuse.
This is not the first time the telegram is required.In 2018, Telegram was temporarily delistered by Apple for the presence of infant porn groups.At that time, the situation was resolved quickly, and Telegram promised to better have the content in the future.
Following the protests in the Washington chapter and elimination of Parler, many moved to Telegram, and the news about transmitting the data from WhatsApp to Facebook has sent a new wave again to this service.As a result, in just a few weeks, Telegram has earned over 25 million new users.
Communities from Boogaloo Bois and Proud Boys, associated with the US far -right movement, which were already present on Telegram, it is assumed to have increased significantly in the last period.Telegram says he blocked over 182 communities with links with the events in the Capitol who encouraged violent acts.
