When somebody is in the middle of rapid firing you some text messages and they become too much for you to bear, you have a few options on your iPhone.

How To: Delete Telegram Messages & Whole Conversations for Everyone in the Chat

If you're looking to keep your conversations private, look no further than Telegram.
