Telegram and Signal, the two instant messaging apps, have been backlashing on WhatsApp's new statement and announcement. Recently, WhatsApp issued another statement that it won't delete accounts after May 15, but it will limit functionality slowly if the users don't accept the policy over the due date.

On this, the other messaging apps started their verbal fight on Twitter. Telegram posted a meme showing that it is about time to trash WhatsApp and Facebook.

WhatsApp replied to this with another meme with a caption that reads, "Telegram admin: '...and what people don't know is we are not end-to-end encrypted by default.'"

But the fight didn't stop here; Telegram shared a screenshot on the thread and wrote, "@WhatsApp Our users know how things work, and have the open-source apps to PROVE it. You... talk to the screenshot."

This meme fight traces way back when Telegram posted a picture where two spidermen are pointing fingers at one another as WhatsApp and Facebook and standing in front of an NYPD vehicle.

However, in this conversation, Signal has also pitched in for self-promotion and wrote, "*check the calendar. pours coffee.* Today's a great day to switch to privacy."
