How will advertising work on Telegram?
One of the concerns of users about advertisements is the annoyance of seeing them all the time or even interrupting communication. However, advertising on Telegram will only be in the streams live that people with channels of more than a thousand followers do.
In addition, the announcements will consist only of texts of 160 characters maximum that will appear in the large mass and public channels of Telegram.
