If you ask me, yes. my first IM is Matrix. Even for two of the events in 
which I was involved, whole communication took place in Matrix. Those 
other programs which were conducted in telegram were organized by others 
yet one of them made it possible to be in the program through Jitsi.

Maybe not a bad idea to share that Gnu Meetup even was streamed to 4 
different platform: Peertube, Twitch, Youtube and Aparat (an Iranian 
video sharing platform) and surprisingly peertube performed the best!

Long story short, where ever I was involved, the event was made fully 
based on Free Software solutions. Videos are also shared on peertube.
