The founder of Telegram explained why the messenger does not block the disinformation about the coronavirus

The founder of Telegram, Pavel Durov, posted a post in which he explained why the platform never blocked even the most controversial information about the pandemic.

“Telegram has never blocked false information, because we did not think that our role was to decide for our users what they should believe in,” the entrepreneur wrote.

According to Pavel Durov, Telegram currently has 19 government sites that disseminate relevant and reliable information about the pandemic.
