Last month, BTJ launched a secure chat group for staff members on Telegram when it was discovered that one of the emojis used in the app uses very foul language.
See if you can see what the emoji is saying:
Watch it again. If you can’t see the animation click here and look for the emoji labeled “astonished.”
“What does this emoji seem to be saying to you?” wrote one of the BTJ users on the messaging app.
After looking at it closely, it seemed the the emoji was saying, “What the f***?”
Could it be true? Watch it again and see if you agree.
Did Telegram do this on purpose or did one of their bored employees play an international prank on the company? There is currently no explanation for this on the official Telegram website and at the writing of this post, oddly enough, there have been no online threads discussing this matter.
In light of this, BTJ also uses Signal, Threema, and private messaging on DingDash for communication with missionaries in closed countries.
