Banned from Facebook and Twitter, pro-Trump extremists hatch Inauguration Day violence in dark reaches of the (27 hits)

Telegram, Signal draw millions of new users

Encrypted messaging apps Telegram and Signal report millions of new users since the attacks on the Capitol.

One channel dedicated to Trump gained 300,000 new subscribers in the week since Jan. 6, growing to more than half a million members. Another channel, dedicated to Proud Boys, doubled in size to 30,000 members over the same period.

"Now that they forced us off the main platforms it doesn't mean we go away, it just means we are going to go to places they don't see," one user posted.

NBC News reported this week that some extremists were sharing tips on how to make, conceal and use homemade guns and bombs on Telegram, which on Wednesday began removing dozens of channels promoting violence, white supremacy, and far-right extremism.

Channels on Telegram dedicated to white nationalism, libertarian views and second amendment rights, the right-wing Proud Boys group and conspiracies like QAnon have all seen steep increases in membership where calls for "civil war" are common.

In the last week, many Telegram conversations touched on the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol as well as plans for the next rally, according to data reviewed by USA TODAY collected by researchers at the University of Zurich.

Before Parler was taken down I copied this from either the QAnon channel or the Proud Boys channel, I can't remember which. I've been thinking about checking it out:


Public Telegram channel: WeTheMedia

Download the app Telegram

Ok guys. The way this works: certain admins that I have allowed to post content will post in the We The Media channel and then will “pin” to the top of the chat page for public discussion. You can reply directly to “pinned” messages. You won’t be able to respond inside the We The Media Channel itself, only the chat. If you want just info you can go to the Channel and see it all and avoid the chat. The chat will have a ton of ppl posting. There will also be voice chat sections inside the group chat that will run concurrent with the chat , that you can Decide to listen to or not . It’s really nice.

I’m still working on adding some content providers , all your favorite anons, and we can go from there.

Please take the link to the channel and let your frens know where anons and real media/info are at.


1st Link is channel
2nd link is chat
