Telegram's protocol itself isn't necessarily a weakness - recently, a paper was published claiming to have proved the MTProto 2.0 protocol correct. Perhaps because of how recent this was, it doesn't seem to have garnered any discussion or review anywhere.

My above post was more of a complaint of the Signal UX rather than a critique of either protocol but thanks for the link! I would be interested to hear whether people still perceive MTProto to have weakness... but that likely won't change with how much people seem to complain about it, seemingly without much/any rationale. Either way I'll probably still be using Telegram since that's where the users are :)
