Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, stated that he wants to improve its direct messaging system. A recording of the meeting, obtained by The Verge, shows Musk telling staff members that the company would secure direct messages and enhance video and voice communication between accounts while surrounded by presentation slides titled "Twitter 2.0" on Monday at Twitter's San Francisco headquarters.
Musk is correct that DMs have been discovered in the past. Twitter cautioned in 2018 that an unspecified amount of direct messages between businesses and their consumers have been viewable by outsiders, although it is unclear whether or not DMs were utilized.
He praised Signal, a non-profit organization that manages encrypted communication software. Musk said she has spoken with the developer of the app, who is now "potentially willing to assist with" Twitter's DM encryption.
It's unclear if all users will have access to the encrypted calls and chat, or just those who paid $8 per month for Twitter Blue. It's also possible that Musk's intention of "creating X, the everything app" is linked to the upcoming features.
