Similar problem, but so much more confusing!
I have whatsapp. One of my whatsapp contacts sent me a telegram invite. In telegram, the contact name doesn't show up, just the phone number. We chat for a millisecond but then switch back to whatsapp. We stick to whatsapp for months. I recently remembered that I had telegram and logged back in. THe contact was still a phone number. "Weird," I think. So I manually add that number to my whatsapp contact's info. Now I realize, the number is off by one digit. Maybe one is personal and one is business. The addition to my phone book generates a second whatsapp contact. Still following?
So, two whatsapp accounts. Whatever. Ok, could still be one business and one personal. But the secondary number has weird motivational quotes for the profile pic. And the profile pic changes multiple times (my friend has the same landscape type profile pic and leaves it up for months at a time). And the secondary acct seems...feminine. Weird, I'm thinking. And suddenly there is a selfie that is decidedly a woman. But it disappears within a couple of minutes. The activity on both accounts is sporadic and weird. This is a guy I've been friends with for a long time, and I am fairly familiar with his online activity, so I'm kinda scratching my head at this point. And also a little concerned bcs I haven't really heard from him. And now I'm confused too, bcs both numbers have his name attached to them (bcs I added the second one to my address book) and I had recently cleared all my chats...so now I'm not even sure which acct is his primary acct...bcs at some point BOTH profile pics had changed.
Had to dig up his original contact info from somewhere else to straighten it all out. Deleted the secondary number (since he never gave me that one, no point keeping it.). Now when I go back on Telegram, it's back to just a phone number, but it's the same old number he's always had. WTF is going on?? And his time stamp on telegram is still from a couple of weeks ago, so it's not like he's on there changing things up.
I should probably just ask, but at this point I feel like I've playing detective and have way oversleuthed it. So although I'm still curious (and would love some insight), I'm just leaving it alone.
