At present Telegram is running the service in tandem with WhatsApp. But this time the ban on this instant messaging platform came down! In fact, on Friday, a judge in Brazil’s Supreme Court ordered the closure of the nationwide messaging app Telegram. Allegedly, the agency did not cooperate with the Brazilian authorities; Instead, they block profiles or run propaganda, as well as provided information linked to blogger Alan Dos Santos. However, the legal move is a big business blow for Telegram, as well as a blow to President Zaire Bolsonaro, who has more than 1 million followers on the platform.
Meanwhile, the federal police have advised closing the app. In all, De Morris gave Apple, Google, and Brazilian phone carriers five days to block telegrams from their platforms. Although the platform was operational in that country yesterday.
Pavel Duravit, one of the founders of the messaging app, said in a statement that they had problems with their corporate addresses and emails between the Brazilian Supreme Court. This led to miscommunication between the two organizations, and as a result, the court ruled to ban Telegram. Durv apologized to the Brazilian Supreme Court for their negligence, saying they could have done better.
