Telegram Channels

Channels on Telegram are essentially public streams of posts, similar to Twitter or RSS.

Since 2019-06-01 (update blog post), it is possible to "preview" channels on the web, e.g. @Telegram. This can possibly be used to archive Telegram channels with ArchiveBot. Messages can be scraped without JavaScript, however not all attachments are available.
