Telegram is a social media platform, currently known as a messaging app. It’s now passed 1 Billion downloads. Here at The Pulse, we’ve experienced a tremendous amount of censorship from Big Tech platforms like Facebook, for example.

We’ve been working in the field of “alternative media” since 2009. We are no stranger to censorship, even before COVID. We’ve been subjected to algorithm changes, Facebook “fake news” strikes that are clearly unwarranted, and much more.

Censorship has hindered our business model to the point where we now struggle to do what we do on a monthly basis and sustain ourselves. Because of censorship, we and many others have created accounts on other platforms. We are a limited team, so we can only manage so many accounts at once.

Where do mainstream media outlets get their funding from? Mostly big corporations or wealthy billionaires – and sometimes governments. This can produce massive conflicts of interest in what comes out of mainstream media coverage. This is why some information is presented in a specific light, while other information is completely ignored and even ridiculed.
