Twitter May Be Reviving End-To-End Encryption For DMs – SlashGear

According to Hong Kong-based security researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter has silently begun working on enabling end-to-end encryption for DMs. In a recent tweet, Wong posted screenshots of code references within Twitter’s Android app indicating that end-to-end encrypted DMs are on the way. Elon Musk replied to Wong’s tweet with a winking smiley — which some people have interpreted as Musk’s confirmation that this feature is indeed on its way. What makes Jane’s tweet important is that she happens to be a well-known analyst with a long history of accurately identifying unreleased app features.

More interestingly, we may actually need to thank Jane for this feature. This is because it was Jane herself who asked Musk to revive the end-to-end encryption feature. She made this public request a little less than a week ago, and it seems Musk did take note of her suggestion.

It remains to be seen how long Twitter takes to roll out end-to-end encryption to Twitter DMs. If this does happen in the near future, Twitter’s DM service will be right up there with the likes of WhatsApp, Signal, and Telegram — all of which have supported end-to-end encryption on their messaging apps for a while now.
