Twitter's New Owner Elon Musk Wants DMs to be End-to-End Encrypted like Signal
Quote:Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla and Twitter's new owner, on Thursday called on adding support for end-to-end encryption (E2EE) to the platform's direct messages (DM) feature.

"Twitter DMs should have end to end encryption like Signal, so no one can spy on or hack your messages," Musk said in a tweet.

The statement comes days after the microblogging service announced it officially entered into an agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, with the transaction valued at approximately US$ 44 billion, or US$ 54.20 per share in cash.

The deal, which is expected to be closed over the next six months, will see it becoming a privately held company.

"Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," Musk said in a statement.

"I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open-source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans."
