I've more or less settled on , though I hope they eventually follow and , 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.
