Telegram's meme game on fire

Telegram shared the famous Ghanaian dancing pallbearers meme without any caption. The meme shows the dancing group with a coffin during a funeral and a screengrab of WhatsApp's updated privacy policy attached on top. The post triggered a viral thread on Twitter, where Telegram communicated with netizens posting hilarious jokes and memes to complement the GIF. When one user suggested the meme would have looked better with the EDM song that usually goes along with it, Telegram obeyed by sharing the video with the music. 

Telegram had earlier posted another meme showing two spiderman pointing fingers at each other with Facebook and WhatsApp logos superimposed instead of an actual face.

How is Telegram better than WhatsApp?

Telegram, which was founded in 2013, was only available for iOS earlier before expanding its services to Android. Telegram is in many ways better than WhatsApp because it allows users to store all their data on the cloud and access it anywhere, anytime, even using a new device that does not have your data stored in its internal storage. Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram gives users the option to share files up to 2 GB. The app also allows users to text anyone by searching just their username, even if they are not in the contact list in order to help keep the phone number of users private.
