Uhm, didn't see that coming (totally did):
Not sure how I feel about that (totally do).
I've more or less settled on #Signal, though I hope they eventually follow #Telegram and #Wire, etc, and enable use without having to disclose a phone number.
@galambborong @fribbledom I don't think Telegram allows usage without providing your phone number to Telegram, although recently there is an option to hide the phone number from people who have it in their contacts.
@setthemfreeYes I think that's right, but one doesn't have to disclose one's phone number - one can share a username instead. But yes, a number is needed to use it!
