How many users downloaded Telegram after WhatsApp crashed?

On October 4, Facebook experienced a 6-hour outage due to a DNS configuration error that left the social network and Mark Zuckerberg’s other platforms like WhatsApp, Instagram and Oculus VR inactive for 6 hours.

With WhatsApp having 1,000 million monthly users, many people started migrating to other platforms, and Telegram was one of the most benefited because it is the most complete messaging app.

Thanks to this outage, the application developed by Pavel Durov registered a total of 70 million new users.

“I am proud of the way our team has handled the unprecedented growth because Telegram has continued to operate smoothly for the vast majority of our users. However, some users in the American continent may have experienced slower than usual speed, as millions of users from these continents rushed to sign up for Telegram. Meanwhile, the CEO of Telegram said.

On the other hand, Pavel Durov emphasized that it was the highest growth of users in a single day on the platform.

For new users, I would like to say this: Welcome to Telegram, the largest independent messaging platform. Pavel Durov emphasized; we will not fail when others fail.
