umm... came to know about telegram few days back. It's supposed to be
an alternative to whatsapp with lot of features to boot.
I don't have a android phone (still on a pre-smartsphone era platform)
but it would be nice if somebody wants to try it with me. I did see
it's almost on all the platforms and they do have an Public API
published (how stable or not, not known.)
If somebody tries it out, add my number and we can test it out. Give a
shout though before trying it out so I know.
