Telegram is not just a messaging app, it has become a tool for making money and online marketing. Many people create a Telegram channel or group and earn money by increasing its members. So, in addition to being a source of revenue, the Telegram has also become a source for advertisers’ services and products.

Increase Telegram members by producing appropriate content
The main thing that can significantly increase the reach of your channel or group members is to deliver content that is relevant to the needs and interests of users. The more up-to-date, engaging, and user-friendly your content becomes, the more members subscribe to your channel or group. So always try to identify the main purpose of your channel or group of content in terms of content and choose the best setting or areas. This can greatly impact the increase in Telegram members.
Another thing which will help to increase Telegram members that are relevant to the type of content you produce is that you simply should not change the topic of your channel. Try to choose the best thing possible from the start. You can add new categories to current topic within the future as you expand, but never change the main subject of your channel.
So why scraping members from Telegram Groups?
It’s a good opportunity to get attentions from related Telegram groups. You may want to get members from other related groups and add them to your group. Also, you can send messages to them and start engaging (Without Spamming!)
Enough Talking. Let’s get our hands dirty with the code.
Disclaimer: Telegram doesn’t allow adding more than 200 members to a group or channel by one account. Using this script, I am able to add around 150-200 members with 60 second sleep between each add; after that, you have to change to another Telegram account/number.
THE SCRIPT CAN SCRAPE ONLY FROM PUBLIC GROUPS (not channels), as of now.
Basically you firstly need to get API keys from Telegram.

Is Web Scraping Legal?
Technically, you can make use of the extracted data into your website with any one of the online scraping tools. Thus, the issue is whether it is legal to use that extracted data or not. Thus, the right advice is to contact the owner of the data before using these data, though it the extraction of it’s public and anyone can see or use it.
Thus it’s believed that you simply are going to be just obtaining data from the website and using it non-commercially. If so, then it is not seen any of the infringement of IP in such a place. This data must be publicly accessible which anyone can have the manually scrapping without any means of automation.
