Telegram makes a big promise. Here you can communicate safely. The dark side. The criminals. Therefore, drug and gun terrorists planned attacks via
Telegram. Or dream about it. We can create these pigs. The Lauterbach. However,
Telegram's anonymity also has positive aspects. Opponents from Hong Kong or Belarus use the app to organize their protests in Ukraine, people warn about Russian attacks via

Telegram posted a rather unusual survey in which all users in Germany were asked whether or not profit data can be passed on to the Federal Criminal Police Office, which is quite unusual because
Telegram founder Pavel Durov has always promised to its users otherwise. was founded and exactly with this mantra durov presents himself as a kind of last defender of freedom of expression and that is exactly why he is a hero for many stateless people who fight for radical freedom of expression no state has anything to tell him he only serves to its users within
telegram it is independent the vice president also repeats the mantra in a very rare interview, there are always attempts to draw an opposite image of us, but our point of view has always been and is neutral, we are just a platform on which people can expressing your opinions and opinions may differ sounds radical and consistently impresses yes idealistic who are these people? who do

Telegram employee, Elis Campo, worked for a few years in the inner circle of the company and now wants to describe a little how it is there and yes, why are people so optimistic about it?
The Messenger reportedly only has about 20 employees. in the whole world there are very few people who have been to the Inner Circle i just hope ellis doesn't cancel now even at short notice because communication with him has always been relatively exhausting Barcelona is ellis hometown how should he meet in the center near the popular promenade that has not yet canceled the interview is supposed to take place in a catalan cultural center and Ellis actually comes at the agreed time he is an engineer trained in the unisanford elite previously worked in Whatsapp then was a manager in
telegram during six years he changed because he believed that
telegram was more honest to take its users seriously idealistic yes but rather top down one of these decisions Ellis could not support had been dissatisfied for a long time.

telegram my office was there in the corner a few windows to the left was the conference room and to the right all the way to the end of the building a full half of the sixth floor durov was a hero from the beginning who does not question Meeting room for important conferences modeled on a torture chamber The dome of the house of the singer bab se light colors supposedly vary according to pavel durow's mood when you are part of the team you are like in a bubble you have your part take care of technology all political issues pavel takes charge alone the leader of all political decisions finances take care of all communication with the press also goes through it if you are in a sect you do not have the feeling of being in a sect only in hindsight it is a he closed company that claims to be the best founded in 2006 now has around 100 million users the first big hit Anton Rosenberg worked behind these windows for durov for a total of eight years and followed his boss blindly for a long time has advantages and disadvantages that everything depends on the decision of a single person that only a few know how it works you should trust these people Rosenberg was not just an employee he had known durov for 20 years until the break up he was a good friend of pabel nikolai's older brother durov the technical mastermind behind v-contacts and

telegram and history it's like this in december 2011 a special police task force was supposed to be here he wanted to have dealt with durow and he very much has g He doesn't have a secure channel to communicate with his brother so he got the idea that he needed something like

telegram attracts attention again City Festival in St. Petersburg Pavel is at the window of his office and throws the banknotes from the window down into the street people fight for money for the way he sent some of the tickets like paper planes are supposed to be the template for the
Telegram logo and Pavel stood there and supposedly laughed after a power struggle with investors that you have sell on v-kontakte receive around 400 million US dollars allegedly disliked by the Kremlin claims he is now a public enemy Pavel leaves Russia buys to British Virgin Islands citizenship at that time 27 Pavel is doing worldwide and comes across as the new superstar of the tech scene but one with one ideal Alternative model to the money hungry, we role models for such sayings he loves in his community because his messenger is not only cooler but because no one here listens to his experiences with the Kremlin.
You make it clear over and over again that he doesn't like you. authorities and borders you need philosophy inspires many governments and states absolutely not his thing does not think within limits sees himself as a citizen of the world according to this principle has also built his network of companies all over the world companies of
telegrams are registered, some of them have already been canceled supposedly to avoid state control and for the safety of users, but even so, other reasons are coincidental because some of the locations are tax havens and the advantages of the network of companies they are discussed in internal emails tax evasion tax evasion is also a form of contempt for the state he remains true to himself but deep down things are going very well for him
telegram and Pavel and the number of users is increasing, the promise of that we won't pass on your data seems to get caught up, but there's also a problem because governments suddenly want ra content to be removed dical and what is Pavel durov doing, who is joking away from the stages away from the hated states no one got to any government either and especially not the German federal government and they really would have to talk Autumn 2021 in Germany politicians are arguing compulsory vaccination on the street has intensified and in
telegram groups even if our presidents have been trying to reach the federal government
telegram for a year it calls for hate and hate e but there is no reaction there is a call for revolution and for armed resistance how far would Mr.
Buschmann go then there is no doubt what is circulating on
Telegram that is not only disgusting and indecent but in many cases it is criminal the applicable criminal law is absolutely clear and now we have to think about all the possibilities and the government federal threatens with a fine of 55 million euros to those who wrote to these two towers in Dubai the headquarters of the Alka 7 tower according to the registry or from the company the problem

telegram should be located, at least that is what the Federal Office of the Judiciary sent the hearing letter here in the spring but if you look it seems very difficult or impossible to deliver a letter here we will try anyway and we will call now and see if someone opens no no one has opened and the fine notification from the federal government also came to nothing we received a tip from an informant who wants to remain anonymous it is said that there is another address in Dubai the real yes bye great the tipster told us where the real office is also they are in dubai so the work is actually the
telegram team works in dubai but not in this tower, beyond the mid-way commercial tower that says the real
Telegram office is supposed to be there, of course we want to know that our informant has something for us, Pabel's private
Telegram account, we send an interview request, then we fly in looking for the office in dubai can't be that hard after all a billion we had sent a request to pavel durov on his private
telegram account and you want to show me and now i want to say he read it he read it but of course he replied no answered.
It's consistent but a multi-billion dollar corporation with 700 million users worldwide that just can't be reached where free speech ends and responsibility begins we also headed to the wrong tower mailbox company first just tomake sure no one is actually at the mailbox, but that's the printed address, we want to find the actual office and get ready at the hotel. I said you have some fancy meatball now but hey dubai port city here you don't pay wealth and income tax btw. dubai not a fan of journalism film here is only allowed by permission doesnt make it any easier now yes that should be the tower the office is now unofficially located in problem number one we dont know what floor the

We carefully approach our informant from the outside. he gave us another hint that we want to try to address people employees who look like russian programmers our advice was to wear Adidas clothes ask and what do you do if the head of the second largest courier in the world does not answer in the
telegram exactly do you write him a letter of old school but maybe we will find out if
Telegram has their offices and where she said she doesn't accept it because I don't know which floor the letter belongs to which floor the company is that's why you won't accept the letter but she said something she didn't say she did not say now the company does not give her in the lobby no reference to the
telegram no signal and the reception blocks us without success we go back to the hotel we wrote to Pabel and a conversation partner say again that we are on site in Dubai and we would really be ready for an interview at any time.

Telegram and the federal government and suddenly channels like Atilla Hildmann's are removed and guess why Pavel Duo didn't react before watching The justification for the problems with email is what government circles say.
The scheme shows one thing every time economic existence is threatened. Pavel du gives up and always comes back with the same excuse. about that, the promise is no longer worth much, you will also find out from your old colleague Anton Rosenberg. I think Pabel promises not to pass on any data for public relations purposes, but he would never tell the truth if he had to choose between closing the company and working with the authorities to make him decide on the latter because the business is more important to him returning to the survey that
