Apple demanded to remove animated emoji from Telegram

After the release of a major Telegram update, the creator of the messenger, Pavel Durov, explained why Apple delayed the release of the iOS version of the application for a long time. It turns out that the company was embarrassed by the animated emoji that debuted in the messenger.

After extensive media coverage of my previous post, Apple responded to us with a demand to reduce the functionality of the upcoming Telegram update by removing Telemoji, improved versions of the standard emoji in vector format with animation. This is a puzzling move on Apple’s part, as Telemoji will create a whole new dimension for its low-res static emoji and greatly enrich their ecosystem. But in the long run, this is a boon for Telegram – now we will make Telemoji even more unique and recognizable. In addition, we’ve included 10 other emoji sets in today’s update. Along with the ability for any user to upload their own.

Animated emoji, which debuted in Telegram’s latest update, are aimed primarily at the messenger’s Premium subscribers. And users of the free version can only admire them in chats and publish them in Favorites. Some emoji can be interactive – in chats they respond to mouse clicks or touches on the touch screen. In addition, Premium users have the opportunity to block the sending of voice and video messages to themselves, as well as to give a subscription as a gift.

An Apple representative contacted 9to5Mac with more information about the Telegram update. Some of the new Telegram emojis have the same wording as Apple’s branded emojis. Third party developers cannot create applications that “similar to an existing Apple product”. As per App Store guidelines 5.2.5. Apple explicitly states in the same rule that this includes a ban on copying Apple’s emoji design.

Great again Elon Musk again offers to buy Twitter at

Billionaire Elon Musk decided to buy Twitter. He sent a letter to the company announcing his intention to acquire the microblogging network for an initial cost of $44 billion. This is $54.2 per share.

Great again: Elon Musk again offers to buy Twitter at the same price

Back in April, Twitter management announced an agreement with Musk to buy the social network. In May, the businessman said that he was temporarily refusing the deal until he was given information about the proportion of bots and spam accounts. The social network estimated the indicators at the level of 5%, Musk spoke about 20-25%. In July, Musk finally pulled out of the deal.

As a result, Twitter sued the businessman to force him to buy the social network. Musk filed a counterclaim, but the details are unknown. It is only said that it is filed on 164 sheets. And in September, Twitter shareholders approved the sale of the company to Musk for $44 billion.

Besides this, there were other reasons. At the end of the summer, Musk’s lawyers cited a statement by Peiter Zatko, the former head of security at Twitter, who accused the social network of poor user data protection. And in September, Musk tried to back out of the deal because World War III could break out.

Previously, Musk said he was ready to return to the deal on the same terms.
