15 useful bots for Telegram for all occasions
To return to the Affairs of bygone days and write a continuation of the review of Telegram-bot (see the first part at this link), we have induced three of information about.
The first relates to expanding by leaps and bounds audience communication services in Russia, since the locking of the latter in 2018 increased exactly in half — from 15 to 30 million people. A twofold increase in the number of users who were outside the law of the messenger illustrates the efficiency of the Federal
A legislative initiative on the cessation of the persecution of the Telegram made earlier by the State Duma deputies proposed a ban on the blocking of the communication services by which state agencies disseminate official information during emergencies and during periods of increased readiness. The communications Ministry rejected the idea, explaining their refusal by the possible abuse of the developers of such services. The actor dispelled the fears of the officials and stated that the unlock of the messenger can play a positive role in ensuring the national security of the country.
According to the founder of Telegram, the experience of communication services in dozens of countries over the past six years showed that the fight against terrorism and the right to secrecy of personal correspondence do not exclude each other. “I hope that taking into account international practices and specifics of modern technologies will help Russian legislators to combine these two tasks. For its part, will continue to support such initiatives”, — said Pavel Durov. What is this unexpected resignation of Mr. Durov, once the mountain behind their offspring, we can only guess. It is not excluded that the cause was the failure of the blockchain draft Telegram Open Network (TON) that motivated the leadership of the “Telegram” to review plans for the development of the product and different accents.
And finally, on June 18 of this year, Telegram has been officially lifted (though official information on the transmitted encryption keys and not), so you can now expect even more audience growth. Pavel Durov on the news about unlocking reacted again unusually friendly towards the regime, saying “the actions of the authorities are encouraging.”
Interesting to recall in connection with these events quite interesting the position of the Ministry of digital development, communications and mass communications of the Russian Federation, which is responsible for the above mentioned plot. Recently the Minister Maksut Shadaev in the program “Posner” on channel one admitted that Telegram among other messengers appeared — bend fingers! — the most fast, efficient, simple, convenient and cheap way feedback was abroad by the Russians in the period of the pandemic coronavirus and operational information on export flights. “It became clear that our citizens are actively using Telegram” — shared his observation of the Minister, stressing that, despite the resource lock according to the court, the domestic legislation did not forbid the use of the communication service by the Russians. “If the messenger is technically available, citizens can use and in this sense do not bear responsibility”, — assured the head of Minsvyaz the video of the interview which is available for viewing on YouTube at this link.
