'Instant messaging service Telegram has added a feature that lets a
user delete messages in one-to-one and/or group private chats, after
the fact, and not only from their own inbox. From a report:
The new 'nuclear option' delete feature allows a user to selectively
delete their own messages and/or messages sent by any/all others in
the chat. They don't even have to have composed the original message
or begun the thread to do so. They can just decide it's time. Let that
sink in. All it now takes is a few taps to wipe all trace of a
historical communication -- from both your own inbox and the inbox(es)
of whoever else you were chatting with (assuming they're running the
latest version of Telegram's app).'
