Twitter is reported to be working on end-to-end encryption for direct messages, according to well known researcher, Jane Manchun Wong. Jane tweeted earlier this week that she had found that the social media company is working on end-to-end encryption again, based on code she has found in the Android app.
Back in 2018, Twitter was working on making DMs fully end-to-end encrypted, but nothing came of it. Twitter was going to call the feature “secret conversations.”
Earlier this week, Jane tweeted out that she had found evidence of end-to-end encryption in the Android app, of which Elon Musk replied with a winky face, pretty much confirming it is coming.
