If the kind of meetings you host are ones where non-Debian-users attend, 
then perhaps it makes better sense to call them something else than 
"Debian meetups".

Mobile is definitely a thing nowadays, but certainly not the only one.

Nice that you mention here that other user channels exist.

Nice.  Even nicer if free software with a homepage and usable on 
mainline linux - and if not already packaged in Debian then had an RFP 
or ITP bureport filed - see http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/#l1

Good luck with that Telegram channel,
