Messaging app Telegram gained over 70 million new users during Monday's Facebook outage , its founder Pavel Durov said on Tuesday, as people worldwide were left without key messaging services for nearly six hours.

"The daily growth rate of Telegram exceeded the norm by an order of magnitude, and we welcomed over 70 million refugees from other platforms in one day," Durov wrote on his Telegram channel.
