Telegram posted the image with no caption. The picture was subject to viewers' interpretation. From what it depicted, the messaging app hinted, that now that the two platforms Facebook and Whatsapp shared the users' data, the tech giant could easily run the risk of breach of confidentially, leaving the users wondering about where the information got compromised of the two platforms as it later tweeted the interpretation. Whatsapp has been one of the world’s most engaged social messaging application with millions of users on board. However, Telegram recently started to gain popularity after Whatsapp updated users’ privacy and data. Amid the ongoing privacy concerns, Telegram seized the opportunity to mock the messaging app Whatsapp via hilarious memes, cautioning the users.

A user in the comments thread responded to Telegram's meme, saying that despite the security concerns, he was unable to let go of Whatsapp due to his "rich sticker database." To this, Telegram replied, "Sorry, any sentence that includes "rich stickers" and doesn't include "Telegram" seems to make no sense." It further guided another user on how to delete his WhatsApp account in the comments section after he posted the query.

There was a time when we thought stickers were stupid. Then we found a way to make them great. I'm pretty sure that you'll like the implementation if we ever decide to go down that road too. ð— Telegram Messenger (@telegram) January 8, 2021

In a separate meme, telegram replaced the face of an African rapper, and wrote, "I'm about to end this man's whole career," in a jab on Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg without mentioning names. It further promoted the messaging app's end-to-end encryption chat feature and that the secret chats on telegram cannot be forwarded as it replied to another user that transfer of chat would mean creating "an avenue for fabricating chats." Netizens were left in splits at Telegram's "savage" responses and the meme, as users suggested that the app was overwhelmed due to the umpteen "someone joined telegram" notifications.

I already deleted WhatsApp account once (yes, account), but Facebook didn't remove my account from their servers so people kept sending me messages for months and were angry at me. So I had to install it again.ð¤·âï¸— Jerko Cilas 2077 ð§ (@DarthChillash) January 8, 2021
