   Is anyone running Telegram on CentOS 7? I see that it seems to be
   available as a snap and also in the getpagespeed repository. I try
   to avoid snap apps but am not familiar with the latter repository.
FWIW: on Fedora I'm using pidgin for all kinds of messaging: with the
purple-telegram package installed it also supports Telegram.

Fedora includes purple-telegram and it is also in EPEL for CentOS 8,
but AFAICS it is unfortunately not available in CentOS 7 EPEL.
