Telegram launches Telegraph, a long-form publishing platform
Telegraph on Tuesday launched a strikingly similar publishing platform to Medium and Quip. The latest vertical to the Telegram messaging app has given the added advantage to the already flooding fake news that is prevalent in the world wide web, as no user needs an account to publish in this portal.
The other highlighting feature of the publishing platform is that it can embed tweets, Facebook posts, YouTube videos and other images from your computer or from the web, just by dropping the link while drafting. The whole process of embedding multimedia content has become really simple in the new platform.Since the user does not have an account in the Telegraph, the only way you can edit or have a back up of your works is only if you have not deleted the cookies from your computer. If you try to access the content from a different device you won’t be able to edit it but only view the content. Moreover, if you forget the link, then your content is lost forever in the internet.
