The popular messaging app Telegram has exhibited malfunctions due to platform overload, the Deputy Head of the Parliamentary Committee on Digital Transformation, Oleksandr Fedienko, wrote on his Telegram channel on Oct. 10.
“By analyzing sensors on the network, we can see that there is a complication of communication through the Telegram app,” he wrote.
“This is due to the overload of the Telegram digital platform itself. The remaining digital platforms work without overloads.”
He advised people to temporarily switch to other messengers and apps.
