Telegram communities are taking off and enabling incredible discussions, newsfeeds, and micro learning platforms. Yes, Telegram was initially created as a secure, cloud-based social messaging platform to compete with the likes of Messenger and WhatsApp (for more on this, read Siraj Abbas’ explanation why use Telegram). However, the platform has now mixed Twitter-like functionality (channel leaders publicly broadcast information), with community or group dynamics. What has ensued is the birth of some truly relevant conversations, which you may engage as quickly or as deeply as you please.

It’s no secret communities are important for startups (if you want to read more about the importance of joining a community check out our earlier post on “Why communities are important”). That’s why we’re here to share with you the top 5 telegram channels we enjoy and recommend!
