Yeah, I read the article and am aware of the qualification you made. I'm just a bit skeptical that even those single person Telegram chats are "private," too.

What is private here? If refer to privacy in general that e.g. telegram can't read your messages then I don't know but when the telegram's privacy mode is enabled, you can't retrieve the messages from the API. If you refer to other people can't interact/see my communication with the particular chat bot then based on some tests I did it seems to work fine and others can't discover it. If you refer to something else, please elaborate, I'm curious.
