And compared Telegram stories with WhatsApp statuses
Telegram founder Pavel Durov answered a series of questions about Telegram stories and comparing them to WhatsApp statuses. Telegram users without a Premium subscription will be able to publish no more than three stories per day, while there are no such restrictions in other social networks and the WhatsApp messenger.
“I think it’s very stupid to compare the current daily limits for stories in Telegram with WhatsApp for many reasons,” Durov said, adding that the limits are needed to pre-launch the function (soft-launch) so that the load on the servers increases gradually, and not spasmodically. Over time, it is easier to raise limits on the server side
Telegram stories can be much more annoying if they are allowed to be used without any restrictions
Telegram stories are a completely different genre as they are displayed on the home screen instead of being stored in a separate tab like in WhatsApp. Therefore, stories are much more visible and can be much more annoying if they are allowed to be used without any restrictions.
Today Telegram is celebrating 10 years since its founding, as announced by Pavel Durov . He also said that the ability to publish stories, which appeared in July only for owners of a paid Telegram Premium subscription, is gradually becoming available to all users.
