WhatsApp censorship preview and link URLs that contain the word Telegram


Whats Telegram

A few weeks ago we announced that the latest update of WhatsApp ya implemented the preview links on hold conversations with your contacts. Thus, not only URL had a hyperlink to be opened easily but appeared a brief description and picture / logo of the site in question.

As time has not failed to see that the implementation is not entirely clear and WhatsApp has used to censor certain domains like, what a coincidence, any link has the word telegram its closest competitor.

As you can in the following screen any domain that contains the word telegram is not previewed, nor it appears hyperlinked. Let a examples general as well as other messaging servcios push:

 blockeo Telegam

At the conclusion of our test it appears to have lock all string telegram in the main URL, ie if a web is how:

  • http: //www.URLPRINCIPAL.extension/añadidos
  • As write a web address where with or without “ http: / / www. “contains telegram domain / subdomain ( URLPRINCIPAL ) will not appear previewed in WhatsApp not even linked to the recipient can go to see the web directly.

    Screen Capture A The 2015 November 30 15 14 37 According to tests, the blocking of the preview is the string telegram in the domain of the URL

    In fact not only preview and link blocks but you can not be copied even as all the message text:

    Copy No You can even copy the entire message format text

    What you think about it ? A neglect by WhatsApp or clear as anticompetitive in the field of push messaging apps. What it is clear that any website that is “telegram” in its URL is affected by this measure, such as news web telegram.com Massachusetts.

    I know what I personally believe to such measures of lack of neutrality, and you, what do you think?
