Telegram is a mostly open source chat system (web and app-based) which acts as a social network due to features like group chats and channels, originally intended as a drop-in replacement for WhatsApp.

Telegram Channels

Channels on Telegram are essentially public streams of posts, similar to Twitter or RSS.

Since 2019-06-01 (update blog post), it is possible to "preview" channels on the web, e.g. @Telegram. This can possibly be used to archive Telegram channels with ArchiveBot. It is unknown if all messages are scraped reliably, because that may depend on JavaScript.
