In the "SOCIAL" panel of the main page, it can attach the Telegram or Mastodon shortcuts and remove the one from Google+, since the latter is a project that has been discontinued for the general public

Google+ has been removed for being a discontinued service.
Not sure if either Telegram (purely mobile) or Mastodon (federation) would be a good replacement. MeWe is probably a better choice.

Mastodon (or Pleroma, or GNUSocial, or whatever) is more equivalent to Twitter than G+.

On that note, if you do set up an account on a Mastodon instance, there are tools out there that you can use to crosspost from Twitter pretty easily, as long as the instance allows it. I've seen plenty of news sites doing this already.

Telegram has its website that does not depend on the mobile (although they are making a new interface), Me We is a good option and they have already put it

Telegram is an instant messaging service, not a social network (just because it supports groups doesn't make it one, any more than a phpBB forum like this one is a 'social network'.). At any rate, what would one link to from here? The web interface to one's Telegram contacts? :wtf:
