First of all, make sure it is Socks 5 + DNS because you want your DNS requests
to be anonymous also.
Also, Tor is primarily an anonymity tool. If you have to log into Telegram
with a private phone number, then you're not going to be anonymous and so Tor
isn't going to be a big help to you. That is, unless you're using a burner
phone/sim that doesn't have your real name associated with it.
Secondly, will the Telegram servers accept messages from Tor exit nodes? You
might want to find out from others first before your spend money on it or get
into trouble with their service.
