Two and a half years-old messaging app Telegram has hit the big time, at least in some parts of the world. As of today, the service boasts over 100 million active monthly users with more than 350,000 new ones signing up daily. As well, 15 billion messages are delivered through it each day. Not too shabby.

With few options available to Iranians, and even fewer good ones, its domination makes perfect sense. Naturally, users in the country are waiting for the other shoe to drop.
